RiverDogs GM agrees to public prostate exam to support child fighting cancer

Just days after a Myrtle Beach baseball general manager had a public prostate exam in a show of support for a nine-year-old fighting cancer, the general manager of Charleston's RiverDogs said he's willing to do the same...on one condition.

RiverDogs Executive President and General Manager Dave Echols agreed to participate in the "Two-Knuckle Challenge" on Saturday, when his team hosts the Hagerstown Suns at 6:05 p.m., if fans can push the number of likes on the "Fierce Fallon" Facebook page to 13,000 by game time.

If that milestone is reached, Echols will consent to the procedure as he sings, "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" during the seventh-inning stretch.

"Joining the 'Two-Knuckle Challenge' in support of Fallon Emery is a unique way to back this important cause," Echols said.

Emery, from Carolina Forest, is battling brain cancer and has been receiving treatments at MUSC in Charleston.

Over the weekend, Myrtle Beach Pelicans Vice President and General Manager Andy Milovich had the exam during his team's game if the page received 10,000 likes.

On Wednesday afternoon, the page had 12,212 likes, less than a thousand away from the new goal.
