    As the baseball flared into short center field in the bottom of the 2nd inning at Dodger Stadium last night, most of the crowd stood up and gave the batter, Joc Pederson, now standing on 1st base, an excited, prolonged ovation. 

    Sitting a few rows behind home plate, my friends...

  • Satin’s big league dream

    August 28, 2013 | 12:36 pm

    When New York Mets infielder Josh Satin hit his second Major League home run on Aug. 21, it was hard to know what was more noteworthy: the fact that the Jewish player from Hidden Hills was a relatively old 28 or that there was a fan with a “Hail Satin” sign in the stands.

    In professional baseball's 135-year history, there have been, at last count, 143 Jewish ballplayers. Yet only two of them are bona fide stars:

    the great slugger, Hank Greenberg, who played from 1930-1947; and the game's greatest left-handed pitcher Sandy Koufax, 1955-1966 (along,...

    July 1, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    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.

    Yoshinoya and a sushi restaurant sprang up at Dodgers Stadium after Japanese pitcher Hideo Nomo donned blue, but it's going to be a while before L.A. fans will be able to bite into a kosher Dodger dog, even with the addition of Jewish outfielder Shawn Green.
