Product Notes

Baseball is seen as the quintessentially American sport with good reason. Emerging by the mid-nineteenth century as the nation's most popular game, baseball provided each new wave of immigrants with an avenue into American culture. Jews And Baseball traces the Jewish involvement in the history of the sport from the game's earliest days, through the tumultuous war years to today's All-Star games. By bringing to life dramatic moments in this history, including Hank Greenberg's support of Jackie Robinson and how the legendary Sandy Koufax pioneered rights for players, the film demonstrates how Jews shaped baseball, and baseball shaped them. Narrated by two-time Academy Award winner Dustin Hoffman, this lively and thorough account of Jewish America's love affair with baseball sheds new light on America's national pastime. Includes interviews with former player Al Rosen, sports historian Maury Allen, celebrity enthusiasts Larry King and Ron Howard, and all-stars Shawn Green and Kevin Youklis, as well as a rare interview with baseball legend Sandy Koufax.
