We have a winner!

Posted on: November 2nd, 2017 by Ron Kaplan

Congrats to Alex Bregman and the Houston Astros, baseball’s 2017 world champions after they beat the host LA Dodgers, 5-1.

Both Bregman and Dodgers’ outfielder Joc Pederson figured prominently in their team’s offense.

George Springer led off the game for Houston with a double and Bregman did the proper thing, hitting behind the runner to advance him to third. But Springer scored on a wild throw to first and Bregman wound up on second. He then stole third and crossed the plate on an infield out to give the Astros a 2-0 lead. That was all they would need, so in a way Bregman was responsible for the win from an offensive point of view. He also struck out three times and was in the on-deck circle when the last out was made in the top of the ninth. Bregman finished the Series with two homers, five RBIs, and a .233 batting average.

It was his glove as much as his bat that made Bregman a standout in the series

Pederson — who established the new “Jewish record” for  most home runs in a single fall classic with three — had the chance to be the hero in the bottom of the first, coming up with the bases loaded and two outs; he grounded out to second to stem any rally. Pederson led off the sixth with a single to center and scored the Dodgers’ only run. He also struck out twice.

Pederson was the offensive spark plug for his team, leading the Dodgers in hits (six), doubles (tied with two), home runs (three), RBIs (five), batting average (.333), slugging (.944), and OPS (1.344). Fun fact: Pederson hit 11 home runs in 273 at-bats during the regular season; he had three in 18 during the World Series.

Prior to the game, Sandy Koufax, 81, shared ceremonial first-pitch honors with former Brooklyn Dodgers’ teammate Don Newcombe, 91, as a commemoration of the franchise’s first World Championship in 1955.

It was the 39th time the Series went to a seventh game, but from my point of view, it was a relatively dull affair.

The Dodgers may have lost, but Pederson and Jewish baseball fans will always have this great memory:

Mazel tov to the winners, and rachmones for the losers.

JML Update, Game Three scouting report

Posted on: October 27th, 2017 by Ron Kaplan

Joc Pederson will start Game Three for the LA Dodgers, as the venue moves to Houston Astros’ home. Now that he homered, how many will jump on the Jewish geography bandwagon?

Robert Wechsler, author of the new release, The Jewish Baseball Card Book, sent me an email noting the accomplishments of Peterson and the Astros’ Alex Bregman:

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.

Joc Pederson smashes a solo home run in the fifth inning to tie the game at 1–1.

Kevin Youkilis had two doubles in nine at-bats for the Red Sox in the 2007 WS, too.

JML Update: World Series, Game One

Posted on: October 25th, 2017 by Ron Kaplan

He’s beginning to talk like a man. On the other hand, what kind of a match would that be with a poor tailor?

On the other hand, he is an honest, hard worker.

But on the other hand, he has absolutely nothing.

On the other hand, things could never get worse for him, only better.

Tevye in Fiddler on the Roof regarding a marriage proposal for one of his many daughters.

This is what I thought of when I learned that the LA Dodgers had beaten the Houston Astros, 3-1. On the one hand, the Houston Astros lost to the LA Dodgers. On the other hand, Alex Bregman was the standout player for his team, relatively speaking. Not surprised that Clayton Kershaw was on his game, striking out 12 in seven innings while holding the opposition to the lone run on just three hits. But one of those hits — and the run — came courtesy of  Bregman, who parked one over the fence in the fourth inning to temporarily tie the game at 1-1.

 

Bregman also started this double play in the fifth inning…

And Sandy Koufax was in the house!

Joc Pederson did not appear in the game for the Dodgers.

Fun facts: Bregman became the youngest player since 1995 to hit a home run in the fall classic. Let’s hope this pronouncement by Dayn Perry doesn’t turn out to be a curse of the Astros’ third baseman. The last Jew to hit a home run in the World Series was pitcher Ken Holtzman as a member of the 1974 Oakland As. His blast came in the fourth of the five-game series, won by the As over the LA Dodgers. He hit only two in the regular season in his 15-year career. According to my quick research, the only other MOT to homer in the World Series was Hank Greenberg, who hit five: one each in 1934, 1935, and 1940, and two in 1945.

JFL Update, Week 4

Posted on: October 3rd, 2017 by Ron Kaplan

https://kckingdom.com/wp-content/blogs.dir/220/files/2013/12/7694520.jpgThe Kansas City Chiefs remain unbeaten (4-0) after field goal with four seconds left on the clock sealed the deal in a 23-20 win over the visiting Washington Redskins. Mitchell Schwartz was the starting right tackle and played on all 76 offensive downs plus another six on special teams. The Chiefs have the highest score differential with +43 and a large part of the credit has to go to the offensive line.

Ali Marpet was the starting center for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and appeared on all 64 offensive downs as the Bucs (2-1) beat the struggling and visiting NY Giants, 23-20 in overtime. With the Giants at 0-4, largely in part to a sluggish offense, why not promote Adam Bisnowaty from the practice squad? What could it hurt?

Nate Ebner made another tackle as part of the New England Patriots’ special teams unit, but it didn’t prevent them from losing 33-30 to the visiting Carolina Panthers. Ebner was on the field for 22 plays, 79 percent of the Pats’ defensive time.

As mentioned in previous entries, I don’t really follow the college gridiron but I make an exception for the exceptional QB Josh Rosen, who beat visiting Colorado on Yom Kippur, 27-23. Rosen threw for 372 yards and one touchdown as UCLA broke a two-game losing streak to move to a 3-2 record. Did Rosen fast, as some other Jewish college players have in the past? Don’t know. But Noah Seligman post this piece about former Wisconsin Badger fullback Matt Bernstein, who had a career day while recovering from his fast in 2004. Gabe Carimi did that, too

Of course, it’s probably harder for football players to take off for the Day of Atonement than any other sport. I can’t do the math, but between the college and pro ranks, most games take place Friday, Saturday, or Sunday (yes, I know about Monday Night Football — which are played on both Mondays and Thursdays now), so there’s only a few days it could actually be a conflict. On the other hand, since there are much fewer games than other sports, each one can have a major impact on the outcome of the season. Where you play on the field can make a difference, too. I did a story for the NJ Jewish News several years ago about a Jewish punter who said he felt pressure to play on Yom Kippur because there were no real substitutes for his position.

Not a football issue, but Omri Casspi choose to sit out of the pre-season opener for his new NBA team, the Golden State Warriors, because it fell on the holy day. Not exactly taking as dramatic a stand like Koufax (first game of 1965 World Series) and Greenberg (during a tight pennant race in 1934), but it’s better than all the Jewish Major Leaguers did as their season wound to a close.

Happy Anniversary Sandy

Today marks the 51st anniversary of Sandy Koufax’s perfect game and the last of his four no-hitters.

 

The saddest of words

Posted on: May 4th, 2016 by Ron Kaplan

For of all sad words of tongue or pen,
The saddest are these: “It might have been!”

Thus wrote John Greenleaf Whittier in his 1856 composition “Maud Miller.”

I was reminded of this heartbreaking quote by ESPN’s article, “The Could-Have-Beens,” a list of 25 athletes who for one reason or another, lost their chance of greatness.

For some, like Tony Conigliaro, a popular slugger for the Boston Red Sox in the 1960s who hit more than 100 home runs before turning 23, it was a fastball to the eye that essentially ruined his career and life (he died in 1990 at the age of 45).

For others, like Brian Taylor, MLB’s #1 draft pick in 1991, it was poor judgment and hubris that led to their downfall.

There are no Jews on the ESPN list, but can easily fill in your own, like Ron Blomberg, who was hyped to be the next Mickey Mantle (or at the very least, Hank Greenberg). Injuries got the better of him, too. More recently, you have Ike Davis, who crashed 32 homers for the NY Mets in 2012 and has been on a roller coaster of physical problems ever since. And of course, there’s Sandy Koufax. How can you cry about ah all of Fame pitcher? Well, just think: how much great might he have been had he not been forced to retire at the age of 30 because of an arthritic elbow?

 

 

JML update, Hot Stove edition, Feb. 6, 2015

Posted on: February 6th, 2015 by Ron Kaplan

Wow, there’s a slap in this NY Post piece: “Lucas Duda vows not to be the Mets’ next Ike Davis.” Ouch. “Remember, Ike Davis had a big year in 2012 (32 home runs), then hit nine and 11 home runs the next two seasons. Duda — who was third in the NL in home runs behind the Marlins’ Giancarlo Stanton and the Cubs’ Anthony Rizzo — knows he has to prove he’s not a one-year wonder.” Well, I’m gonna stand up for my homey here and say he was not a “one-year wonder.” He finished seventh in NL Rookie of the Year voting in 2010 on the strength of 19 homers, 71 RBI, and outstanding defense at first base. The next season he appeared in just 36 games due to injury and still hit seven home runs and drove in 25, which project to 31 and 112, respectively over a 162-game season. He proved that was possible in 2012 with 32/90, although his batting average did suffer tremendously. So there.

Look who showed up on the field, post-New England Patriots’ Super Bowl win: None other than Tom Brady’s bro-in-law, Kevin Youkilis. Given that Youkilis was on the World Champion Boston Red Sox in 2007 (he was also on the team as a rookie in 2004 but was not on the W.S. roster), I wonder how it felt for him to be in that setting. Kind of sad that he played his last Major League game at the age of 34. Just goes to show you can’t take anything for granted, either as an athlete or a fan.

of the scores of new baseball titles might be especially interesting to Jewish fans: Finding the Left Arm of God: Sandy Koufax and the Los Angeles Dodgers, 1960-1963Haven’t read this yet (it just came out last week), but I must warn potential purchasers that this is not exclusively about Koufax, but rather the LA Dodgers of those years. In fact, Koufax had superlative seasons over the next three campaigns as well, including his iconic decision to sit out the first game of the ’65 World Series which fell on Yom Kippur.

Finally, I wonder if the world is ready for a movie about the men who invented to modern baseball card?

Belated birthday wishes, Sandy Koufax

Posted on: January 5th, 2015 by Ron Kaplan

http://cp91279.biography.com/Sandy-Koufax_Devout-Slugger_HD_768x432-16x9.jpgI feel sorry for those people whose birthday falls on a major holiday, especially Christmas and New Year’s. It always seems they’re overlooked in the general celebratory mood of the specific event.

So every year I have to post one of these damned “Happy Belated Birthday” for Sandy Koufax, probably the most in-shape and good looking 79-year-old you’ll ever see.

Maccabiah book tie-in:

In what was undoubtedly one of the more bizarre publicity stunts, the Van Nuys Valley News reported that “Sandy Koufax has been named a member of the United States team that will compete in the World Maccabiah games in Israel next month – but conflicting commitments with the Dodgers probably will keep the ace pitcher from being with the Americans.”

As if the Dodgers would allow Koufax, their ace pitcher, future Hall of Famer, and arguably the most famous and important Jewish athlete of his generation, to take time off in the middle of the season.

Koufax was given the honor at a luncheon sponsored by the West Coast Chapter of the United States Maccabiah Games Committee as a “thank you” for supporting the program by underwriting the expenses of 10 local athletes.

 

Starting the year off right (by forgetting a legend’s birthday)

Posted on: January 2nd, 2014 by Ron Kaplan

Great. Right away I have to post an “apology” for missing Sandy Koufax‘s birthday on Dec. 30. He turned 78. We should all look as good as he does at that age. Well, maybe just the men.

I’m not a big memorabilia collector — if some gave me something, I wouldn’t refuse it — but here’s just one list of items available.

Brad Ausmus to manage Detroit Tigers

Posted on: November 4th, 2013 by Ron Kaplan

Congratulations to Brad Ausmus, who becomes the newest JML manager.

He succeeds Jim Leyland as skipper of the Detroit Tigers (Hank Greenberg’s old squad),  a team for whom Ausmus played in 1996 and again in 1999-200. He appeared in 352 games, batting .266 with 62 doubles, nine triples, and 20 homers. He drove in 127 runs and even swiped 27 bases. Not bad for a catcher.

http://thumbs4.ebaystatic.com/d/l225/m/mDqq4XgluD5z0iPeRjov6TQ.jpgAusmus also played for the Houston Astros, Los Angeles Dodgers, and San Diego Padres. His record of 1,971 games tops all JMLs, ahead of Shawn Green’s 1,951. He served as manager for the Israeli National Team in the attempt to get into this year’s World Baseball Classic.

This appointment makes him the first Jewish manager since Norm Sherry, who helped transform Sandy Koufax into a Hall of Fame pitcher, piloted the California Angels for parts of 1976-77.

Other Jewish managers have included Lipman Pike; Lou Bourdreau (depending on your opinion of his religious identity); Andy Cohen (one game for the Phillies in 1960; he won), Lefty Phillips, California Angels, 1969-71); and Jeff Newman (interim manager for the Oakland As for 10 games in 1986) . Some readers have suggested Larry Rothschild, but he does not identify as Jewish (at times adamantly). Thanks to Bob (Day by Day in Jewish Sports History) Wechsler for the list.

Rabbi Jason Miller, a life-long Tiger’s fan, offered this analysis shortly after the announcement was made yesterday. And Dan Epstein, author of Big Hair & Plastic Grass: A Funky Ride Through Baseball and America in the Swinging 70s, contributed this to Forward.com.

Here’s wishing Ausmus Mazel Tov and good luck in 2014 and beyond
