On July 9, 2005, Adam fulfilled every kids dream of reaching the Major Leagues...little did he know his dream would soon turn to a nightmare.  Adam stepped into the batters box in his first at-bat and was hit in the head by the first pitch thrown...resulting in Adam becoming only the second player in Major League history to be hit by a pitch without ever taking the field.  In fact, Adam was not even credited with an official Major League at-bat...that is until October 2, 2012, when Adam, who had signed a one-day contract with the Miami Marlins, finally stepped back to the plate in an official Major League at-bat.  Although he was struck out by Cy Young winner R.A.Dickey, Adam's achievement in returning to the big leagues serves as an inspiration to all.
