Greenberg, famous for
anonymously — if possible —
joining pick-up baseball
games, enjoyed meeting
people. Among the relatively
small group who spoke about
him this week, several re-
called meeting or seeing him
away from the ballpark. One,
Harold Flusty, lived in De-
troit and worked for a laun-
dry company in the '30s. He
used to drive to the stadium,
then called Navin Field, to
pick up the team's uniforms
and got to know Greenberg.
"I got to be friendly with
him. He was very sociable.
Many times he was lonesome
(in his bachelor days). He
really wanted somebody to

cle that said, Leshana tova
tikosayvu!' (Sept. 9, 1934). I
thought it was one of the
greatest things I've ever seen
in a long time, for a Jew,
that they should give respect
and write that kind of article
for him."
Dave Shulman of West
Bloomfield remembered that
"he meant a whole lot, be-
cause when he first started
playing baseball I don't think
there was any other Jewish

"He used to take a lot of
flak from people, because he
was Jewish. But he got over
that. But he made a lot of
good friends. But at that
time, it was as tough for him
to break in (to baseball) as it
was for the blacks to break in
later on. He had plenty of
tough times. But he turned
out beautifully. Once he got

gers — he didn't get along

population, or the general
population, really."
Samuel Goldberg of South-
field recalled, "Even in the
synagogues, they were cheer-
ing for him, right in the
synagogue." And he pointed
out that Greenberg's fans
were not all men and boys. "I
know Jewish women would
go down there every Sunday
to see him play. They went
down especially because he
was there. He was a
handsome-looking fella."
Irene Schreiman of South-
field confirmed that state-
ment, saying that she had
Greenberg's picture on her
dresser when she was a teen-
ager. "I don't know about the
other girls, but I think for
the young Jewish girls he
was a hero. He was a hero for
everyone. Like I said, I had
his picture on my dresser —
big one, too."
