Phil Wood is the host of Nats Talk Live, the official post-game radio show of the Washington Nationals. He’s a long-time radio personality in the D.C.-Baltimore area and an expert on the history of baseball. He’ll join us to discuss the history of Jews in baseball including Hank Greenberg and others who served in the U.S. military. Greenberg’s baseball career was interrupted when he served for almost four years in the Army and Army Air Forces during World War II. Other Jewish players like Sid Gordon served in the Coast Guard. Moe Berg’s double career as major league catcher and OSS spy is the stuff of legend.
