Appropriating Churchill’s words, it could rightfully be said that Morris “Moe” Berg was “a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma.” A truly fascinating figure, Berg was the consummate polymath. He was cut a larger-than-life figure as a ballplayer, an attorney, and a gentleman spy during World War II. His story touches upon baseball, the legal profession, espionage, and the intellectual in American life.
