SANDY KOUFAX RUMORS & GOSSIP

Oy Vey! Koufax, and the 1965 World Series

Sandy Koufax had a left arm envied by southpaws from Malibu to Miami, a curveball rivaling Mulholland Drive’s bends for arc intensity, and a fastball comparable to a bullet shot from a Winchester. None of these assets were on display, however, during Game 1 of the 1965 World Series between the Minnesota Twins and the Los Angeles Dodgers. Because the game took place on the Jewish...

Chicago news: Ira Berkow to share personal stories about Koufax, Greenberg in special Jewish Baseball Museum event

As part of the lead-up to the opening of the Jewish Baseball Museum in the summer of 2016, we are bringing in Ira Berkow to speak at Milt’s.  Ira surely is the only person living who knew Hank Greenberg (wrote his biography), Moe Berg (mysterious catcher that spied for the OSS during WWII), Jimmie Reese (spent 78 years in baseball 1916-1994) and the great Sandy Koufax.  If you...

Flashback: Dodgers' Koufax tosses perfect game, strikes out 14 Cubs

You literally can't get better than perfect, but Sandy Koufax certainly tried. On Sept. 9, 1965, Koufax pitched the eighth perfect game in major-league history. And the left-hander struck out 14 Chicago Cubs in the Los Angeles Dodgers' 1-0 win. It was his fourth career no-hitter. Every batter in the Cubs lineup struck out at least once, with the exception of shortstop Don Kessinger...

Hilarious Cubs Twitter Account Loses Mind As Cole Hamels Throws No-Hitter

Cole Hamels made history Saturday at Wrigley Field when he became the first pitcher to no-hit the Chicago Cubs since Sandy Koufax threw a perfect game against the team in 1965. The Chicago Cubs had recorded a hit in 7,920 consecutive games — or nearly 50 years — entering Saturday, the longest streak in Major League baseball history. One rabid Cubs fan devoted to bringing awareness...

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. Among Jews, he is remembered as more than a great pitcher because of what he did, or more accurately, didn’t do on Yom Kippur...

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

If baseball were to have a Jewish Mt. Rushmore certainly the two heads everyone would expect to be on there would be Sandy Koufax and Hank Greenberg. Both Koufax and Greenberg changed the face of baseball while instilling in Jews pride and ground to stand on as athletes. Koufax, who I would argue was the greatest pitcher ever, leads the way and Greenberg, whose numbers were incredible...
