About the Program

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). Film provided by The National Center for Jewish Film.
