Jewish baseball star Hank Greenberg is among four former sluggers who will be depicted on a series of U.S. stamps. The 39-cent stamps of Greenberg, Roy Campanella, Mel Ott and Mickey Mantle will be unveiled July 15 at Yankee Stadium. Greenberg, who is in baseball’s Hall of Fame, was the first modern Jewish baseball hero in the 1930s and 1940s. He was twice named MVP during his career, which was mainly spent with the Detroit Tigers.
