KANSAS CITY -- When it comes to golf, Alex Gordon is a pretty good baseball player so he skipped the Royals Charities Celebrity Golf tournament on the team's open date on Monday at the National Golf Club in Parkville, Mo.
"I would love to go, but I can't even hit the ball off the tee," Gordon said, smiling. "It's not fun for me, so I just stick to baseball."
