BALTIMORE - Adam Greenberg is getting a chance to resume his baseball career with the Baltimore Orioles.

The 31-year-old returned to the major leagues for one at-bat in October, more than seven years after he was beaned in his debut. He agreed to a minor league contract with the Orioles and will have a chance to earn a job at their Triple-A farm team in Norfolk, Va.

He had contacted Baltimore manager Buck Showalter at the winter meetings this month in Nashville, Tenn. Greenberg says "to get the opportunity with the Orioles means everything to me."

His agreement was reported by several media outlets on Thursday.
