On August 12th, Red Sox players Gabe Kapler (below), Kevin Youkilis (right) and Adam Stern (left) played in the ninth inning against Texas. Perhaps the first time that three Jews took the field at the same time in major league baseball. Reports by The Forward and The Boston Globe did not clarify whether the players then formed a zimmun (quorum) and benched "Grace After Meals" at a celebratory dinner.
B'hatz'lakhah garba'im (Go Sox!),
PS Rumor has it that we'll see a
Fleer (Jewish Major Leaguers) baseball card for these three magi by Chanuka!
Adam Stern (2-12-80) is adored by his hometown London, Ontario, where he went to St. Thomas Aquinas (!) High School. (Photo SoxProspects.) This Gabe Kapler fan site has many more photos. Youkilis hit by pitch 6-18-05 (AP photo).
