MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. — A minor league baseball manager in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, has done his part to spread prostate cancer awareness — he had a prostate exam before a field packed with baseball fans.
Myrtle Beach Pelicans' general manager Andy Milovich stuck his head out of the press box to sing “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” during the 7th inning stretch while a doctor below and out-of-sight performed the screening.
Milovich agreed to have the exam in support of a 10-year-old girl suffering from brain cancer if her Facebook page got 10,000 “likes.” That number was reached Monday.
The team has held several events to help raise funds for the girl.
