George Brett, who got his 3,000th hit with a dramatic four-hit game against the Angels in the final week of the season, will return to play a 20th season with the Kansas City Royals, his agent said Friday. "As of today, he says he's ready to come back and play," Dennis Gilbert said. Gilbert said he was told by Kansas City General Manager Herk Robinson that the Royals would exercise their option on Brett for next season. It is the second of two option years tacked on to a five-year contract.

George Brett, concerned by increasing soreness in the back of his left shoulder during batting practice Monday, took himself out of the Royals' lineup shortly before game time. That decision left Brett--who has a lifetime batting average of .326 against the Angels and .545 (12 for 22) against starter Jim Abbott--four hits short of 3,000 with six games left in the season.
