Minor league GM gets public prostate exam

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP) — There as much attention on the press box as on the field at the Myrtle Beach Pelicans minor league baseball game as team's general manager had a public prostate exam.

During the seventh inning stretch of Thursday's game, Andy Milovich bended over with his head out the press box window singing "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" as the exam was performed.

Milovich had the exam performed as part of a challenge with a 10-year-old boy suffering from brain cancer who has a Facebook page telling about his fight. Milovich agreed to have the exam done if the page got 10,000 "likes," a number reached Monday.

Milovich said it probably was one of the oddest nights in minor league baseball but also one of the most important.
