SANDY KOUFAX RUMORS & GOSSIP

Maltz Museum Exhibit Uses Baseball as Prism to View U.S. History

Yom Kippur: The day Sandy Koufax said he wouldn’t start a World Series game

Tonight marks the beginning of Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the year for Jews. In honor of this very solemn holiday, where Jews spend the day in synagogue asking for atonement for the sins of the past year, I am going to do my annual post on Sandy Koufax.

Awesome archival footage from 1965 All-Star Game surfaces

In 1965, Minnesota hosted its first All-Star Game. Tonight, the state hosts its third midsummer classic. MLB released some archival footage of that 1965 game, which features a number of Hall of Famers, including Hank Aaron, Al Kaline, Frank Robinson, Roberto Clemente, and Sandy Koufax. It’s really an awesome piece of history, and I love that MLB keeps dangling these historical...

Introducing...Your Jewish Mt. Rushmore

Koufax, who I would argue was the greatest pitcher ever, leads the way and Greenberg, whose numbers were incredible...
