Wayne Gretzky’s kid is a Chicago Cub?

Trevor Gretzky, Ryan Garvey,

I met Trevor Gretzky in 2008 when he was a sophomore at Oaks Christian High in Westlake Village, near Los Angeles. He was a receiver on the football team, where two of his teammates were QB Nick Montana (son of Joe) and WR Trey Smith (son of Will Smith). Trevor’s determination to avoid hockey so as not become The Son of The Great One has paid off, I guess. The Cubs selected the first baseman in the seventh round (219th overall pick) of the amateur draft.

Gretzky, a senior (pictured, right, with Steve Garvey’s son, Ryan), quarterbacked the Oaks Christian varsity early in the 2010 season but was sidelined with a shoulder injury. Gretzky is committed to San Diego State. Let’s see: Beach, sun, girls, campus celebrity status … vs. the Cubs. I’m guessing he goes to college. (Nope, sorry. He picked the Cubs. So long, beach babes).

    Your guessing he goes to college? He just signed with the Cubs yesterday. What makes you think he will still go to college, when signing with a MLB team makes him ineligiable.
