Major League Hebrews, 2014 Edition
The following list was prepared with the help of Jewish Sports Review (“JSR”) magazine. The following Jewish players were on a major league roster as of April 2, 2014: RYAN BRAUN, 30, outfielder, Milwaukee; CRAIG BRESLOW, 33, pitcher, Boston; IKE DAVIS, 27, first base, NY Mets; SCOTT FELDMAN, 31, pitcher, Houston.; SAM FULD, 32, outfielder, Oakland; RYAN KALISH, 26, outfielder, Chicago Cubs; IAN KINSLER, 31, second base, Detroit; JOSH SATIN, 29, infielder, NY Mets; DANNY VALENCIA, 29, third base, Kansas City. (All these players have at least one Jewish parent and all were raised either Jewish or secular). There are about five other Jewish players now in the high minor leagues who are likely to see some major league playing time this year.
