Interview With Cubs Prospect Trevor Gretzky

11

The son of the most famous hockey player to ever lace a pair of skates is about to embark on a baseball career with the Chicago Cubs attempting to make "Gretzky" a household name but only this time playing America’s favorite past-time. Trevor Gretzky was drafted in the 7th round, 219th overall in the 2011 amateur baseball draft by the Chicago Cubs. The sweet swinging lefty played first base for the Oaks Christian High School in Westlake Village, California where he posted a .393 batting average and an OPS of 1.043 in his senior year. Gretzky wore the infamous #99 during his senior baseball year and was also a quarterback for the Oaks Christian football team. Leading up to the draft there was speculation that Gretzky may attend San Diego State University on a baseball scholarship under the tutelage of head coach and Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn. However Gretzky elected for the MLB draft and is currently playing in extended spring training for the Cubs in Arizona rehabbing from shoulder surgery this past off-season. Gretzky is still unaware where he will be assigned after spring training concludes but one thing is for sure he will be doing it with a work ethic second to none.
