Adam Greenberg faced a major league pitcher for the first time since 2005 tonight. Greenberg, who was beaned in his only other plate appearance faced R.A. Dickey in the 6th inning of tonight’s Marlins – Mets game. Dickey, a Cy Young candidate and 20-game winner, struck out Greenberg on three straight pitches, but the crowd and clubhouse still showered Greenberg with applause. Maybe next time.
A highlight from an otherwise dreary game.
Well, that shouldn’t happen.
But you don’t lose your job due to a one-play injury, right?
Not a happy camper.
