Marlins, Greenberg’s Great Moment

posted by mattaug

Adam Greenberg

Baseball has provided many magical moments over the years and Tuesday night was certainly no different.

Adam Greenberg, who was beaned in his first major league at-bat seven years ago and dealt with an ensuing concussion and migraines, made his long journey back to the ‘bigs’ in a plate appearance vs. the New York Mets.

The result, a three-pitch strikeout vs. Cy Young candidate R.A. Dickey, didn’t matter so much as the fact that Greenberg was back in a major league uniform since that terrible event occurred when he was a ‘Cubbie’.

Dickey, for his part, played it right in giving Greenberg a few extra moments to absorb the love of Marlins fans. He also didn’t cheat the batter, or the game, by taking it ‘easy’ on Greenberg by tossing a few terrific knuckleballs too.

Life isn’t fair, and the Marlins, who I ripped last week for how they have handled a terrible season, received some redemption in their classy move of signing Greenberg for a day.

Sometimes a rocky story can still have a happy ending, and the Marlins and Greenberg certainly enjoyed just that.
