  • Jackie and the Jews [Irish, Italians, Blacks, Poles]: Ethnicity in post-war America

    By Michael Berenbaum

    Jackie was the first. Jackie could not just play the game for himself. He was playing the game for every one of his race who had been denied a chance, whose future was closed because of racism and segregation. Indeed, as I remember it, Jackie played the game for every minority kid...

    Left, Right and the Definition of Evil

    Mr. Prager has stated he has had an obsession with fighting evil (“A Man and a Book,” April 20). He falsely accuses the left from its inception as combating something other than evil, and that is material inequality. Where, Mr. Prager, on...

    In a city where some of the very rich are willing to pay $1 billion-plus for the bankrupt Dodgers baseball team, why can’t anyone spare $500,000 to support an Academic Decathlon program that brings luster to the often criticized Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD)?

    If you’ve ever seen Albert Pujols cross home or a football player take a knee after scoring a touchdown, you might think that God cares about who wins and loses a professional sports game. I tend to disagree. But I know that God can’t be happy with what is happening to His chosen...

    A T206 Honus Wagner baseball card, one of the rarest in the world. Barry Bonds' 755th home run ball. A handful of infield dirt, the broken champagne bottle used to christen the stadium and the first ball thrown out at Ebbets Field, home of the Brooklyn Dodgers, in 1913.

    Shawn Green sits quietly in the Dodgers dugout waiting for pregame batting practice to begin. His unassuming nature seems at odds with his 6-foot-4 figure; his quiet presence inconsistent with his celebrity.
