The Secret History of Jews and Baseball

Hosted By: American Jewish University

Since the late 1800s, American Jews have had a love affair with baseball – as players, fans, sportswriters, owners, and executives. Professor Peter Dreier will be in conversation with Jonathan Dobrer to discuss the key Jewish figures who have influenced baseball from the Little Leagues to the Major Leagues. He will also present some surprising facts about how American Jews have participated in baseball, including some little-known and controversial moments.
