Trying to Make His First At-Bat Not His Last

In the forthcoming book Jewish Jocks: An Unorthodox Hall of Fame, edited by Franklin Foer and Marc Tracy, I wrote a chapter about Adam Greenberg, a baseball player whose first Major League at-bat ended in tragedy. There is now a movement afoot, called One At Bat (more here), to take the edge off that tragedy, but so far it has been unsuccessful. There’s a petition to sign if you’re so inclined.
