This was the first time two Jewish players drove in runs in a World Series game.
It’s rare that two Jewish players even appeared in the World Series together — the last time was 2011 when Ian Kinsler and Scott Feldman both got into a game for Texas. Kinsler drove in two runs in Game 6, but Feldman did not bat.
Teammates Sandy Koufax and Larry Sherry both pitched for the Dodgers in 1959. Another pitcher, Barry Latman, was on the White Sox roster, but did not to appear in the Series.
Jason Marquis of St. Louis and Gabe Kapler of Boston played in the 2004 Series, but neither one had an RBI. (Kapler only had two at-bats.)
Hank Greenberg‘s Tigers faced Cy Block‘s Cubs in 1945 and Morrie Arnovich‘s Reds in 1940. Both Block and Arnovich only appeared as pinch runners in games in which Greenberg had RBIs.
Kevin Youkilis had two doubles in nine at-bats for the Red Sox in the 2007 WS, too.Tags: Alex Bregman, Barry Latman, Cy Block, Gabe Kapler, Hank Greenberg, Ian Kinsler, Jason Marquis, Joc Pederson, Kevin Youkilis, Larry Sherry, Morrie Arnovich, Sandy Koufax, Scott Feldman
