Guilford’s Greenberg Gets One At Bat with Marlins
Adam Greenberg, of Guilford and the Bridgeport Bluefish, signed a one-day contract with the Miami Marlins and will have a chance at another major league at bat. Greenberg’s only other at bat was with the Chicago Cubs in 2005, when he was hit in the head by a pitch and injured. Tyler Kepner of the New York Times has the story. http://www.nytimes.com/2012/09/28/sports/baseball/marlins-giving-adam-greenberg-his-first-at-bat-seven-years-later.html?_r=0
Dave Borges of the New Haven Register also has written a good story on Greenberg. http://www.nhregister.com/articles/2012/09/27/sports/doc506446aa24974133701574.txt
