Baseball Talmud краткое содержание

Baseball Talmud - описание и краткое содержание, автор Megdal Howard (EN), читать бесплатно онлайн на сайте электронной библиотеки Lib-King.Ru.

From the icons of the game to the players who got their big break but never quite broke through, The Baseball Talmud provides a wonderful historical narration of Major League Jewish Baseball in America. All the stats, the facts, the stories, and the (often unheralded) glory.The Baseball Talmud reveals that there is far more to Jewish baseball than Hank Greenberg's powerful slugging and Sandy Koufax's masterful control. From Ausmus to Zinn, Berg to Kinsler, Holtzman to Yeager, and many others, Megdal draws upon the lore and the little-known details that increase our enjoyment of the game, including:Which Jewish player spent a portion of his retirement as a spyWho received $50,000 and a car to quit school and join the Major LeaguesHow many players sat out of games scheduled on Yom KippurWhich famous player chose baseball over becoming a rabbiBut this is more than just stories. Megdal, a stat geek himself, uses the wealth of modern sabermetrics to determine the greatest Jewish players at each position, the all-time Jewish All-Star Team, and how they would rate against the greatest teams in baseball history, from the 1906 Chicago Cubs to the 1998 New York Yankees.The Baseball Talmud rewrites the history of Jewish baseball and is a book that every baseball fan should own.
