Adam Greenberg gets second Major League at-bat (Video)

In one of the more heart-warming stories of the Major League Baseball season, Adam Greenberg of the Miami Marlins got his second Major League at-bat of his career after a disastrous first one.

Greenberg's story dates back to the 2005 when he got his first Major League at-bat with the Chicago Cubs but that plate appearance didn't last long as he was hit in the head by the first pitch of the at-bat.

Since that at-bat, Adam was sent back to the minors and had been there ever since. That appeared to be the end of the story until the Miami Marlins signed him to a one-day contract this week and gave him a guaranteed plate appearance.

Back on Tuesday night, Greenberg faced Mets pitcher R.A. Dickey in a pinch-hit appearance and got a huge ovation from the Miami crowd:
