Jewish MLB Playoff Update

We here at TGR want to announce and congratulate Ryan Braun as the TGR Hank Greenberg award winner given to the 2010 Jewish MLB Hitter of the Year.

Although Braun did not make the playoffs (and might not for a while if Prince Fielder leaves) several Jewish baseball players did.

Both Scott Feldman and Gabe Kapler played this season for playoff teams but neither is on the playoff roster. Feldman was kept off due to a down year, while Kapler is not 100% healthy.

The good news is Danny Valencia and Ian Kinsler have both been playing. Currently, Valencia is 1-5 with 2 RBIS and a walk. Kinsler is 3-8 with a HR, 2 RBIs, and 2 Runs. The major difference between the two is that Valencia and the Twins are a loss away from elimination. On the flip side Kinsler and the Rangers are on the verge of upsetting Kapler’s Rays.

Also, congrats to Valencia who received 1 vote (finishing third) in the TGR Hank Greenberg Award Poll.

Hopefully, the Twins can turn it around and the Rangers keep winning to guarantee one Jewish ball player in the World Series.

And Let Us Say…Amen.
