SELICHOT “A New Beginning”

Adam Greenberg, former MLB Player

     If there’s ever a person who epitomizes perseverance, it’s Adam Greenberg, famous for the one pitch that changed his life forever. A 92 mile-an-hour first-pitch fastball to the back of the head on his major league debut with the Chicago Cubs gave Adam the record for being one of only two players in history to have an official at-bat without ever taking the field. After seven years of continued hustle to get back, Adam signed a one-day contract with the Miami Marlins in 2012. He was inducted into the National Jewish Sports Hall of Fame in 2014.

Adam is an All-State native of Connecticut and an All-American standout at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. In 2010, he founded the health and wellness company Lurong Living, where he enjoys empowering others to gain control of their health through a line of dietary supplements and nationwide health challenges. As a proven dynamic leader, he also enjoys traveling the country sharing his story and keys to perseverance.
