Lost in the story of Hank Greenberg is the fact that he was the first major leaguer to leave his job on the diamond for one on the battle front. Overcome with a sense of duty while his fellow Jews were being persecuted, Greenberg signed before the 1941 season and nearly a full year before Pearl Harbor was bombed! A rare photo from the day he reported for active duty, this is a killer image from Acme with a full paper caption on the back.
