Former UNC baseball star Adam Greenberg can't wait to return

Sunday, July 24, 2005

Adam Greenberg stepped up to the plate at Florida's Dolphins Stadium on July 9, hankering to get a hit in his first official major league at-bat. Instead, the Chicago Cubs rookie got hit -- hard. Greenberg, an All-America outfielder at UNC in 2002, was beaned on the very first pitch by Marlins' lefthander Valerio De Los Santos in one of baseball's scariest scenes of the season.
