The first Jewish baseball hall-of-famer, who battled anti-Semitism on and off the field. Hank Greenberg was raised in New York City, the son of Romanian-Jewish immigrants, and went on to become a baseball legend. This thought-provoking biography follows him from his service during WWII, his long career with the Detroit Tigerswhere the moniker Hammerin' Hank came to lifeand finally to his role as a baseball executive. Readers will experience the prejudice Greenberg endured, even as he made his way into the annals of baseball history: two-time AL MVP, 331 home runs, and first Jewish baseball player inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame.

Archival photos add to the appeal of this amazing story.
