Hank Greenberg: The Hero Who Didn't Want to Be One

Mark Kurlansky


Though Hank Greenberg was one of the first players to challenge Babe Ruth's single-season record of sixty home runs, it was the game Greenberg did not play for which he is best remembered. With his decision to sit out a 1934 game between his team, the Tigers, and the New York Yankees because it fell on Yom Kippur, Hank Greenberg became a hero to Jews throughout America. In this book, best-selling author Mark Kurlansky tells the fascinating life story of Greenberg, the first Jewish player elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame.
