Synopsis >

Hank Greenberg was the first great Jewish star in baseball; at a time when the game was still racially segregated, Greenberg became a first-class hitter for the Detroit Tigers (a host city not always known for tolerance), nearly beating Babe Ruth's home run record and becoming one of the game's best loved figures. Hank Greenberg became a powerful role model in America's Jewish community, and this documentary follows his life and career up to his death in 1986.
