Everyone needs heroes. If yours include Jewish ballplayers, you’ve come to the right place.

Jewish Baseball News provides you with something virtually no one else on the Web does: news and stats on Jews with bats, including a Jewish Box Score that shows how Jewish major leaguers perform each day; a Season Stats box that shows how Jewish major leaguers performed in any year back through 1873; daily updates on Jewish ballplayers in the majors, minors, independent leagues, and college ball; and more.

Some things you should know about us

We define the term “Jewish” broadly. If a player has at least one Jewish parent or has converted to Judaism, does not practice another faith, and is content to be identified as a Jew, we include him.

We admire the great Jewish players of yore, men like Hank Greenberg and Sandy Koufax. But for fans of Jewish baseball players, the present is as intriguing as the past. In 2023 alone, 18 Jews had played Major League ball through July’s games.

Jewish Baseball News is grateful to Shel Wallman and Ephraim Moxson for the critical work of identifying and confirming Jewish athletes, in particular collegians.

If you know of MLB, minor-league, independent-league, or college players who are Jewish but not identified here, please fill out our contact form.

Until then, play ball.
