Player Biography
One of three Hall of Famers to garner Most Valuable Player awards at two different positions (first base, 1935; outfield, 1940), Henry “Hank” Greenberg was one of the game’s premier sluggers. Widely regarded as the first great Jewish ballplayer, Greenberg finished his career with 331 home runs, despite missing three full seasons and part of a fourth serving in World War II. His big bat helped lead the Detroit Tigers to World Series titles in 1935 and 1945, batting .318 in four Fall Classics overall. Joe DiMaggio once said of Greenberg: “He was one of the truly great hitters, and when I first saw him at bat, he made my eyes pop out.”
