Greenberg signed a one-day contract before the game and stepped to the plate as a pinch-hitter leading off the sixth inning against New York Mets 20-game winner R.A. Dickey.
After Greenberg received a standing ovation from the modest crowd and his teammates, Dickey threw him three consecutive knuckleballs. Greenberg took the first for a strike, then swung at the next two and missed.
The game was Greenberg's first since his major league debut in 2005, when he was hit in the back of the head by the first pitch he saw -- a 92 mph fastball that derailed his career.
