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.
Tonight will probably be the most exciting primetime game of the year.
Mike D’Antoni is still the coach in spirit.
