Jewish Sports Quotes

Dodgers Hall of Fame pitcher Sandy Koufax did not pitch in the opening game of the 1965 World Series because the game fell on Yom Kippur. Don Drysdale, who pitched in Koufax' place, gave up 7 runs in 2 and 2/3 innings.

"I bet right now you are wishing that I was Jewish, too,"


-- Don Drysdale to manager Walt Alston

Tips: If there was an all Jewish Baseball team...
Posted on Tuesday, May 03 @ 12:41:01 EDT Jews in Sports

Imagine if you could put together an all Jewish baseball team with the best former Jewish major leaguers- how would they do? In 2001, Jonathan Tobin did just that in Big League Jews- Scouting the all-time Jewish baseball all-stars. Using the FoxSports Web site, Tobin compiled a team via Fox’s Diamond Legends game, which allows baseball fanatics to play an ultra-sophisticated, online version of the old Strat-o-Matic Baseball board game.



Unfortunately the team didn't do too well. Perhaps if they had a group prayer session their luck will change.
