Bridgeport honors Bluefish player after return to majors

Bridgeport Mayor Bill Finch declared today "Adam Greenberg Day" in honor of the Bridgeport Bluefish player who recently got his first official major league at-bat

BRIDGEPORT - Bridgeport Mayor Bill Finch declared today "Adam Greenberg Day" in honor of the Bridgeport Bluefish player who recently got his first official major league at-bat seven years after first stepping up to the plate.

Greenberg was hit in the head by a pitch seven years ago in his first at-bat. Greenberg recently signed a one-day contract with the Miami Marlins and got another chance to bat.

At a news conference, Greenberg said he counted the appearance at the plate as a victory despite striking out.

Greenberg also said he hopes his recovery serves as an inspiration to others with similar injuries.
