Baseball GM Keeps Promise, Has Public Prostate Exam During Game

iStock/Thinkstock(MYRTLE BEACH, S.C.) -- A minor league baseball executive in South Carolina made good on his promise to get a public prostate exam during the seventh-inning stretch of a game Thursday night.

Andy Milovich, general manager of the Single-A Myrtle Beach Pelicans, promised he would let a doctor give him the exam if a 10-year-old girl, who is battling brain cancer got 10,000 likes on her Facebook page. She did, so he did.

Milovich was featured live on the scoreboard -- from the neck up -- during the exam. He said the doctor was done 15 seconds into "Take Me Out To The Ball Game" and the procedure wasn't so bad.

As part of its cancer awareness night, the team also handed out foam fingers to the first 1,000 male fans, 18 and older.
