Hall of Fame slugger Hank Greenberg was the most visible Jewish athlete in the 1930s, now considered to be the most anti-Semitic period in U.S. history. As such, he was subjected to bigoted tirades from fans and opposing team members each time he stepped out onto the baseball diamond. He is remembered as having handled the abuse with grace, but, according to Mark Kurlansky, who’ has just published a biography of Greenberg, that wasn’t always the case.

Kurlansky discusses Greenberg with host Sara Ivry Monday on the podcast.
