Pat White signed by Royals
CHICAGO -- Pat White is going to give baseball another chance.
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.
