One At Bat

This is a great story that I heard about for the first time today. Kind of ironic that it follows my last post about the Rudy book. Both are good stories of persistence and perseverance.

The TODAY Show featured the story of Adam Greenberg. His dream was to play Major League Baseball. He was called up by the Chicago Cubs in 2005 and was given the change to pinch hit in the 9th inning. The very first pitch he saw was a 92 mile per hour fastball that him in the back of the head. He suffered a concussion. He went to the minors, but experienced vertigo and other challenges. Since then he has been trying to make a return to Major League Baseball.

A film maker started the campaign called “One At Bat.” You can check out all the information on the One At Bat website.

The good news is that Adam is going to get his chance. Check out the video below. It gives his story and shows the MiamiĀ Marlins giving Adam a one day contract and a chance to get his One At Bat. The other video gives his story. You need to check out his story. It is cool.
