Hank Greenberg

Born on today's date, Hank Greenberg.

"When Hank began playing in the minor leagues, a player from the South said, 'Hank, people tell me you're Jewish, but I can't believe it.' Hank said, 'Why?' And the other player said, 'Because I heard all Jews have horns on their head, like the devil.'" - Ira Berkow, Greenberg biographer
