JEWISH BASEBALL NEWS — The prestigious Arizona Fall League has added a 6th Jewish player to its rosters, and his first appearance went well.

Mesa Solar Sox 2B Josh Satin, a New York Mets prospect who batted .311 during the regular minor-league season, reached base all four times Wednesday (10/20/2010) in a 6-3 loss to the Scottsdale Scorpions. The 25-year-old singled twice and walked twice as the Sox outhit the Scorpions 10-8 but made 4 errors and went 1/6 with runners in scoring position. Satin, who played 1B, teamed with fellow Hebe Josh Zeid for a 3-to-1 putout in the 3rd inning. SP Zeid gave up 1 run over 3 innings while striking out two.

Over in the MLB, Texas Rangers 2B Ian Kinsler — the lone Jew remaining in the playoffs — went 2/4 and stole a base, but it wasn’t enough to forestall a 7-2 loss to the New York Yankees. The Rangers lead the 7-game American League Championship Series 3-2.

Game 6 of the series takes place Friday night — yep, the Sabbath — in Arlington.
