MIAMI — Only hours before getting his second chance in the big leagues, Adam Greenberg says he’s more nervous about the hazing planned for him by his new Miami Marlins teammates.
The game was Greenberg’s first since he stepped to the plate for his major-league debut in 2005 and was hit in the back of the head by a fastball that derailed his career.
Greenberg said he was overwhelmed by the positive reception from his new teammates, who planned to treat him like any other rookie. Catcher John Buck said Greenberg would don a USA Speedo, blue tennies and pink goggles for a pregame song-and-dance routine in the clubhouse.
