MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – True to his word, Myrtle Beach Pelicans GM Andy Milovich took one for the team Thursday night, and had a prostate exam performed on him in front of a sold out crowd of thousands.

Milovich agreed to sing "Take me Out to the Ballgame" while he received the exam during the seventh inning stretch of the Pelicans game against the Frederick Keys. The Pelicans clinched the series finale with a score of 5 to 4, and Milovich passed the exam with no problems, team officials reported.

Milovich's exam helped raise awareness of prostate cancer, and supported the Facebook page of Fallon Emery, or Fierce Fallon. At just ten years old she is fighting brain cancer, a fight every day, for her life.

He agreed to the exam only if her page reached over 10,000 likes by Thursday – it is now has over 11,500 likes!

"Fallon doesn't get a lot of socialization now you know because she's sick, and she can pick up germs so for her, social media and things like this, you know to have 11,000 'likes' she's like 'oh my God, all these people love me,'" her mother said.

She has a new goal - there's a new number she wants to see: 33,333. Her page is located at: https://www.facebook.com/fiercefallon

Fierce Fallon is one major part of the Pelicans' huge effort to end cancer.

Thursday was Prostate Cancer Awareness Night, the fourth night in the five-night, "Strike Out Cancer Series," by the Myrtle Beach Pelicans.

"If one child has the opportunity to grow up and play catch with their father as a result of detecting a prostate cancer awareness than this is a win," said Milovich.
