Take me out to the ball game…Take me out to the crowd!

 

“Take me out to the ball game,
Take me out with the crowd.
Buy me some peanuts and cracker jack,
I don’t care if I never get back,
Let me root, root, root for the home team,
If they don’t win it’s a shame.
For it’s one, two, three strikes, you’re out,
At the old ball game.”

 

 

On July 9, 2005, Adam Greenberg was about to have his lifelong dream
of playing Major League baseball come true. The Chicago Cubs called him
up from the minors and in the 9th inning, in a game against the Florida
Marlins, he got the call to pinch hit. On the very first pitch from
Valerido de los Santos, Greenberg was struck in the back of the head by a
92-mile-per-hour fastball. He suffered a concussion and was
immediately removed from the game.
Adam was sent down to the minors for a rehab assignment, but
struggled with severe vertigo and other symptoms of post concussion
syndrome. Adam’s career and life were put on hold for a year and a half.
Since then, Adam has played for several minor and independent league
clubs trying to get a second chance in the Major Leagues.
Of the almost 17,500 people to play in Major League baseball, Adam
Greenberg is the only player to have his career end on the very first
pitch. In fact, according to Major League rules, Adam’s debut only
counts as a plate appearance, not an official at bat.

THE MISSION

We want to get Adam Greenberg his first “official” Major League at bat.
Of the 17,500 players who have played in the major leagues, no player
has ever had his MLB career end on the first pitch—except Adam
Greenberg. Due to Major League rules, when Adam was hit, his at bat was
recorded as a plate appearance, not an official at bat. We would like to
see Adam make it back to the big leagues for the official at bat he
earned.

WE CAN HELP!!!

We can create awareness of Adam’s story. We can tell teams and Major
League baseball that we want to see them do something for the good of
the game. It’s an opportunity for the sports world to be an example for
the rest of the world.

Why did I sign the petition?

 
I
signed the petition because Adam hasn’t given up. He still practices
and tries hard every day to make it back. Sign the petition so we can
add one of the true lovers of baseball back to the game of baseball!!!
