Marlins say 'No' to Adam Greenberg's MLB comeback

Marc Serota

Miami declines to invite Greenberg to the team's spring training.

The Miami Marlins have no interest in bringing Adam Greenberg to their spring training and have informed the former MLB player that he will not be invited to tryout for the team, according to a report in the Sun Sentinel.

Greenberg is most known for his Major League debut with the Chicago Cubs in 2005, when he was struck by a pitch in the head in his first-ever plate appearance. Due to a successful online petition, though, the Marlins awarded Greenberg a one-day contract last season, giving him a chance to bat once again. Greenberg struck out in three pitches against the New York Mets' R.A. Dickey.

Greenberg is currently at MLB's winter meetings in Nashville, Tenn., petitioning teams to allow him to attend spring training and attempt to make a professional roster. He is one of two players in MLB history to be hit by a ball at the plate without ever taking the field.
