Jewish Baseball Player.com was developed with two main goals in mind. First, we wanted to put together a product that would combine baseball and Judaism and appeal mainly to the Jewish population, but also to baseball fans as a whole.
We believe that the timing is perfect in that at no other time in baseball history could a group of stars from the past and present be put together at once. The group ranges from 1953 MVP Al Rosen, the most dominant pitcher of the 1960’s in Sandy Koufax, 1970’s and 1980’s superstars including Cy Young winner Steve Stone and World Series MVP Steve Yeager, 1990’s 30-30 club and 49 home run hitter, Shawn Green, to the active superstars of today in Ryan Braun, and Ian Kinsler.
The project will also educate people, especially the Jewish population, as to the role of the Jewish athlete in major league baseball.
