Florida Marlins suspend batboy for drinking milk

It’s Stupid Sports Team of the Day today, I think.

On a dare, a Florida Marlins batboy tried to drink a gallon of milk in under an hour without throwing up. But not only did the batboy not succeed in the challenge, his mere attempt cost him his job for six games, the Miami Herald reported Wednesday.

The Marlins suspended the unidentified batboy for the team’s upcoming six-game homestand against the Cardinals and Mets from Aug. 28 through Sept. 4 for accepting the dare Sunday from Dodgers pitcher (and former Marlin) Brad Penny. . . .

“It’s kind of ridiculous that you get a 10-game suspension for steroids and a six-game suspension for milk,’ Penny told the Herald. — ESPN

Oh, by the way, you can’t drink a gallon (3.79L) of milk in an hour without throwing up.
