Interesting quote...thanks...bet he would have been the "great one" in lacrosse too.
Found this line re: his baseball skills at age 19
"In 1980, hit .492 for hometown Brantford CKPC Braves senior league baseball team, attracting the attention of the Toronto Blue Jays, who offered him a tryout. He declined."
"TORONTO - Wayne Gretzky always has been around the game of baseball. As a teenager, he spent his summers playing for Brantford in the junior Intercounty Baseball League. Wayne's father, Walter, was part-owner of the Brantford Red Sox of the IBL."
