Hank Greenberg may in fact have been a practicing Jew on at least one occasion “Double header,” March 18. During World War II while I was training as a naval officer, a fellow midshipman, Ronald L. Greenberg (no relation to the ballplayer) recounted how “Hammering Hank” attended his synagogue on the High Holy Days. Ron went on to become a prominent attorney in Michigan. I have no reason to think he would have fabricated this tale.
