In 2005, Adam Greenberg was struck in the head with a fastball in his first major-league at-bat. He's spent the last seven years trying to get back to the majors. Last week, he signed a one-day contract with the Marlins and got his second career at-bat to a standing ovation in Miami last night. He struck out swinging against R.A. Dickey. The following profile of Greenberg is excerpted from Jewish Jocks: An Unorthodox Hall of Fame, available Oct. 30. Reprinted with permission of Twelve.
