MLB draws a crowd of stars in Sydney

By The Associated Press
SYDNEY (AP) - The Los Angeles Dodgers and Arizona Diamondbacks are expected to sell out Sydney Cricket Stadium twice this weekend for their season-opening series.
They're also pulling quite a crowd of sports stars ahead of the games.
In between team workouts Wednesday, Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw and Diamondbacks first baseman Paul Goldschmidt kicked around rugby league, Australian Rules football and soccer balls with former Juventus legend Alessandro Del Piero (soccer's Sydney FC), Sonny Bill Williams (rugby league's Sydney Roosters) and Adam Goodes of the Australian Football League's Sydney Swans.
There were plenty of millionaire salaries in the photo op, led by first-game starter Kershaw, who signed a seven-year, $215 million contract with the Dodgers in January. Celebrating his 26th birthday Wednesday, he also was presented with a cake.
