Jan 16, 2020

The news shocked Detroit when the city found out one of its heroes, Hank Greenberg, had been sold to the Pittsburgh Pirates. But the reason for the deal, which happened 73 years ago this week, is even crazier. Mike and Bill dig into the long and eventful life of one of baseball's best sluggers, his struggles against anti-Semitism, his heroic service to his country, and the misunderstanding that ended his time in Motor City. Plus, happy birthday to Bill Madlock and Rance Mulliniks!
