COLUMBIA (WACH) â?? Pelicans Vice President and General Manager Andy Milovich received a prostate exam in front of more than 6,000 people.
Milovich received his exam at TicketReturn.com Field at Pelicans Ballpark on Prostate Cancer Awareness Night while singing â??Take Me Out to the Ballgame.â??
Milovich had the exam as part of a challenge with a 10-year-old girl suffering from brain cancer who has a Facebook page about her fight. Milovich agreed to the exam if the page got 10,000 "likes," a number reached Monday.
Milovich said it was an odd night in minor league baseball but also was one of the most important.
Except for skin cancer, Prostate Cancer is the most common cancer in American men, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
