Hammerin’ Hank Greenberg: Baseball Pioneer
by Shelley Sommer (Author)
Booktalk: Have you ever heard the story of the first Jewish baseball player inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame? Read this biography and find out how he did it.
Hank Greenberg was six foot three by the time he was thirteen years old, a fact that sometimes caused embarrassment. “I began to think I was a freak,” he said. His height, though, combined with his physical strength, made him the perfect first baseman, the position he played for the Detroit Tigers for seven years, before moving to left field.
