And to be fair his #'s in the minor leagues were pretty decent. NO power but a career
The Cult of Gattis
If we're going down this road, I'd rather give Prior one inning to pitch than this dude one at bat.
The fact is, there are thousands of minor and major league players who have their careers cut short because of injury. Ya, it sucks that it happened to him but he isn't special.
The Marlins have signed Greenberg to a one-day MLB contract, meaning he will finally get his second at-bat.
Looks like he will suit up on October 2nd....he is donating his salary to the Sports Legacy Institute via the Marlins Foundation, which makes this even more of a feel-good story!
screw that. This will screw other organizations and make them look bad afterwards when they say no.
what if he hits homerun, does he get another AB. like it wouldn't hurt right? lol
I applaud the Marlins for this. We need more feel good stories in life.
Someone should give Ben Petrick another at bat!
Unfortunate what happened to him, but if he is dedicated to the game as much as it appears, he should earn his way back to The Show.
awesome story, there is no negative to this. Dont really care why the Marlins did it, they stepped up and it is an awesome story. Hope he gets a hit. I have not watched a Marlins game all year but will certainly tune in to this one!
The Marlins are desperate for any kind of good publicity.
This is kind of embarrassing.
In case you weren't aware, there is now a Religion Forum here. All high-quality discussion welcome!
Is he going to get his at bat against Dickey? That would be interesting.
