The Life and Times of Hank Greenberg

"When America Needed Heroes, A Jewish Slugger Stepped To The Plate."

The film, The Life and Times of Hank Greenberg is a documentary of the baseball player, Hank Greenberg, who played a huge role in the discrimination of ethnic and religious groups. During the thirties and forties many Americans faced discrimination and prejudice, and this extended from society to the world of baseball, where Greenberg was able to make a difference.

As a Jewish baseball star, Greenberg chose to use his celebrity to break barriers, work against discrimination and give a voice to American people that were facing this discrimination. This film is a tribute to his life and a unique look into the workings of society.
