Anyone who knows me knows that I am a die-hard baseball fan. Thirteen years ago, when I heard the news that we were getting a baseball team, I nearly flipped out from happiness and excitement. Since then, I haven’t missed a Washington Nationals game (I’ve mostly watched them on tv, but have also seen some great games at Nats Park!)

I remember wondering if Ryan Zimmerman and Max Scherzer were members of the tribe. Turns out that they are not, but 11 other players and a manager are. Below is the list of some of the Jewish major leaguers. Click on the player’s name below for details about him and his stats:

  1. Ryan Braun (RF/LF), Milwaukee Brewers
  2. Alex Bregman (SS), Houston Astros
  3. Scott Feldman (P), Cincinnati Reds
  4. Brad Goldberg (P), Chicago White Sox
  5. Ian Kinsler (2B), Detroit Tigers
  6. Joc Pederson (CF), Los Angeles Dodgers
  7. Kevin Pillar (CF), Toronto Blue Jays
  8. Danny Valencia (1B/3B/OF), Seattle Mariners

Speaking of baseball, did you know that the J has a baseball team that is going to the JCC Maccabi Games® as part of the Northern Virginia delegation? At the Maccabi Games, for five days, teen athletes/artists participate in tournaments, community service projects, and exciting social events with Jewish athletes and artists from around the world! Learn more here.

Want to experience major league baseball with members of the Jewish community? Come out to the ballgame on Sunday, August 27, 2017 for Federation’s third annual Jewish Community Day at Nationals Park. Join more than 1,500 community members at Grand Slam Sunday and watch the Nationals take on the Mets! Get your tickets here for the J's ticket block here: Hope to see you at the game!
