Second Chance: Marlins Sign Adam Greenberg To One-Day Contract
Published September 27, 2012
COMMISSIONER APPROVED DEAL: In West Palm Beach, Joe Capozzi reports Greenberg will “bat against R.A. Dickey after the Marlins received approval" for the contract from MLB Commissioner Bud Selig. Greenberg has agreed to “donate his one-day salary to the Marlins Foundation, which will then make a donation to the Sports Legacy Institute -- an organization that advances the study, treatment and prevention of the effects of brain trauma in athletes and other at-risk groups.” He currently is one of “only two players ever to be hit by a pitch in his first-and-only Major League plate appearance and never take the field" (PALMBEACHPOST.com, 9/27). In Ft. Lauderdale, Juan Rodriguez notes Greenberg “developed vertigo and post-concussion symptoms that stalled his career.” He last played “on an affiliated baseball team in 2008.” From ‘09-11, he was with the independent Atlantic League Bridgeport Bluefish (SUN-SENTINEL.com, 9/27).
