Bat Boy drinks milk, doesn't vomit, gets suspended

I heard on the radio this morning that Brad Penny of the Dodgers bet a Marlin's Bat Boy that he couldn't drink a gallon of milk in less than an hour without vomiting.  The bet was $500, the bat boy drank most of it without vomiting, but did not finish.

The bat boy was suspended.  Now the Milk Processor Education Program is getting involved to teach people about how to drink milk.  Finally.

Penny told the paper the boy drank the milk and didn't throw up, but didn't finish the gallon in the allotted time frame to win the dare.

"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.

"It's ridiculous that they worry about stuff like that. It shows they [the Marlins organization] don't know anything about the game. That kind of stuff goes on everywhere. It didn't affect the way he worked, the way he did his job," he said.
