One time Chicago Cub, Adam Greenberg will be given a second chance to have his first ever MLB at-bat with the
Florida Miami Marlins.
During his first ever at-bat in 2005, Adam was beaned in the back of the head by a 92 MPH fastball. Since then, he’s been battling vertigo and terrible minor league pitchers.
This past summer Adam was given the opportunity to play with Israel’s World Baseball Classic team. With just one at-bat in three games, Adam was walked and scored a run. Woopty dooooo!
I’m really not surprised a last place Florida team is pulling off this kind of stunt. Sure, the Marlins suck, and it’s really nice to give a guy a second chance even though he hasn’t really played any baseball in 2 years. It’s also nice to see a guy come back from a terrible hit to the head 7 years later to get his first ever MLB at-bat back (Actually, HBP counts as an at-bat, but we don’t have to be too picky). It’s just that Florida seems to love to do these PR things. Ex: Tampa Bay Lightning and their female goalie.
tonight on Tuesday October 2nd, Adam! Glad to see you giving your one day contract to charity. I hope they let you run around the bases in the first ever inside the park homerun where everyone on the other team claps for you. It would be terrible to see you strike out on the softball pitches you’re going to get. Make us proud to be semi related to you. <3
