Goldberg was a Fulbright scholar, earned a doctorate degree from the University of Rochester, and even served as the Assistant Secretary of Education.
Dr. Goldberg passed away in 1997, and while he is not often remembered for his accomplishments in baseball, the jersey he wore as he proudly represented his country as a Jewish-American in 1936 can be found at the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, a testament to the bravery he showed in the face of adversity.
