Pat White signed by Royals

CHICAGO -- Pat White is going to give baseball another

The former West Virginia and Miami Dolphins quarterback signed a
minor league contract with the Kansas City Royals on Friday. White
played his rookie season in the NFL last year but was cut last
weekend by the Dolphins.

White was a pitcher and played center field in high school, but
he never played baseball in college. Still, he was drafted in 2004
by the Los Angeles Angels, two years ago by the Cincinnati Reds and
last year by the New York Yankees.
