Mordecai "Three Fingers" Brown? Who were the two players?

Of course Sandy Koufax and Hank Greenberg.

Even more interesting was a photo from the 1937 All Star game. As I recall, Lou Gehrig, Joe Cronin, Joe Dimaggio, Mickey Cochran, Jimmie Foxx and Hank Greenberg. A healthy looking bunch of muscular fellows. Greenberg was a head taller than the rest. Incredibly imposing looking fellow. The bat on display, however, was pretty unremarkable. Must have seemed tiny in his hands.

I knew his son Glenn slightly in college. He was also a very big fellow, all-Ivy defensive tackle. Glenn had a twin and classmate who was also a good athlete, but I don't recall ever meeting him.
