Batboy suspended for being on the juice

Posted at 8:59 AM on August 25, 2005 by Ben Tesch

Florida Marlins pitcher Brad Penny offered a batboy $500 to take the ol' Gallon of Milk Challenge. (For the uninitiated, to "win" this dare, you must drink a gallon of milk in less than an hour without throwing up. If you haven't guessed already, not only is it quite difficult to drink that much liquid, but your body does not process milk fast enough, so you just end up filling up and throwing up. Basically, you can't win.) The wacky twist is that the Marlins organization got wind of this dare and suspended the batboy 6 games.

"It's kind of ridiculous that you get a 10-game suspension for steroids and a six-game suspension for milk," said Penny.
