Gabe Kapler was hustling around the bases on Thursday -- then he suddenly collapsed in the infield due to a ruptured Achilles tendon. Ouch! I guess poor Gabe's out for the season. Refu'ah shleymah (speedy recovery) to Gabe.
Also, a belated refu'ah shleymah to Adam Greenberg, the unlucky guy who got horribly beaned facing his very first pitch in the majors. Cubs update here. His parents and three siblings were watching, imagine how they felt.
So, will Rabbi Moses Feinstein zt"l be posthumously rethinking his ruling to allow professional baseball under Jewish law? Well, Reb Moshe didn't overturn his own precedents often. Adam and Gabe, maybe he'll put in a good word for your with the heavenly front office....
On a happier note, the Red Sox organization was kind enough to release this very Secret, Exclusive and Terrific photo of the three Jewish Red Sox fielders who played together on August 12th. Thank you, O' kindly RedSox.com !
