Marlins Sign Adam Greenberg to Give Him One At Bat

After an online campaign, the Marlins have agreed to sign Adam Greenberg to a 1-day contract and allow him to get his one career at bat on October 2, 2012. Greenberg, who recently played for Israel in the World Baseball Classic, made his major league debut against the Marlins in 2008 but his career ended that day when in his first plate appearance, he was struck in the head by a Valerio de los Santos pitch. The goodwill gesture/marketing gimmick was approved by MLB with Greenberg’s one-day salary going to charity.
