It was brief, but it was oh so sweet.
Arguably the most amazing strikeout of just about anyone’s career, Adam Greenberg will remember Tuesday night for the rest of his life.
After a seven-year hiatus, Greenberg was given the opportunity to dig back into the batters’ box. A member of the Cubs seven years ago, Greenberg was drilled in the back of the head on the first pitch of his first major league at-bat and never returned — until Tuesday night in Miami, thanks to a fan-driven petition.
The Marlins’ pinch-hitter didn’t last long, though, as R.A. Dickey struck him out on three knuckleballs.
