Samenvatting

The first Jewish baseball hall-of-famer, Hank Greenberg battled anti-Semitism on and off the field. He was raised in New York City, the son of Romanian-Jewish immigrants, and went on to become a baseball legend. This thought-provoking biography follows him from his service during World War II, through his long career with the Detroit Tigers--where the moniker Hammerin' Hank came to life--and finally to his role as a baseball executive. Readers will experience the prejudice Greenberg endured, even as he made his way into the annals of baseball history: two-time American League MVP, 331 home runs, and first Jewish baseball player inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame. Archival photos add to the appeal of this Sydney Taylor Honor Book.

Recensie(s)

A multilayered portrait. --Kirkus Reviews An excellent choice for kids who enjoy delving into baseball history. --Booklist Sommer skillfully places Greenberg's career in the context of the Great Depression, World War II and Jackie Robinson's pioneering efforts as the first black major leaguer. --San Fransisco Chronicle
