It’s time for spring training! Hank Greenberg—of the Detroit Tigers—was baseball's first Jewish star. Tall (6’4”), handsome, and uncommonly good-natured, Greenberg was a secular Jew from the Bronx who became “the baseball Moses.” Join in when Mandy Patinkin sings “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” in Yiddish! (90 min, 1998, rated PG).
