Who was the first Jewish major league baseball player to go into the Baseball Hall of Fame?
Pretty sure that was slugger Hank Greenberg. Edit: Oh! You asked about team. Detroit Tigers.
I am not sure but I do think that Levi Meyerle should be looked at. He won the first batting title in 1871 as a member of the Philadelphia A's in the old National Association. He played 8 years all together winning one more batting title. ( Although back then I am sure having the best batting average was not called a batting champion.
I think it was Hank Greenberg.
