Greenberg Gets Long Awaited At-Bat on Tuesday

By  | 

MIAMI (AP) - Adam Greenberg is expected to make a pinch-hit appearance for the Miami Marlins on Tuesday.

Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen had previously stated he was considering starting Greenberg in the outfield and batting leadoff for his one at-bat, but has since decided he will insert him in Tuesday's game against the New York Mets at some point.

Greenberg has been in the national spotlight when the Marlins announced last week that they would sign the 31-year old to a one-day contract so he could receive one at-bat after getting hit in the head in his Major League debut seven years ago.

Greenberg made his big league debut on July 9, 2005 with the Chicago Cubs and was hit in the head by a pitch thrown by Marlins lefty Valerio De Los Santos in his only plate appearance.
