  • Jewish pitcher smashes a grand slam

    Jason Marquis became the first Jewish pitcher to hit a grand slam since 1950.

    Marquis, a Chicago Cubs’ right-hander, connected to right field off Mets’ rookie lefty Jonathan Niese Sept. 23 at Shea Stadium in New York.

    The last Jewish pitcher to hit a grand slam was Saul Rogovin of the Detroit Tigers in 1950. Rogovin smashed his homer off Eddie Lopat of the New York Yankees.
