Henry Benjamin "Hank" Greenberg (January 1, 1911 – September 4, 1986), known as The Hebrew Hammer, was a US first baseman and outfielder for the Detroit Tigers from 1933 into 1941, at which point he was drafted into the United States Army. After World War II, Greenberg returned to the Tigers, playing for them in 1945 and 1946. He also played one season for the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1947. He hit a career batting average of .313 and a total of 331 home runs. He won the World Series with the Tigers in 1935 and 1945, was American League MVP in 1935 and 1940, was selected to five AL All-Star Teams, and was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1956.

Hank Greenberg in Southern VictoryEdit

Hank Greenberg was a running back for an American football team. He was well-known in the United States but nearly unheard of in the Confederate States. Irving Morrell's army used this to their advantage in Pittsburgh when they made Greenberg's name a password to identify Confederate infiltrators behind the lines.[1]
