Born in Newark, Moe Berg was a Princeton and Columbia Law School graduate fluent in a half-dozen languages. During baseball’s Golden Age, he was a beloved player and coach for five MLB teams. As World War II accelerated, Berg began a secret and dangerous life, spying overseas for the Office of Strategic Services.
Berg’s extraordinary, improbable story is told with rare historical footage and revealing interviews with an All-Star roster of commentators drawn from the worlds of history, sports and spy craft.
