Career highlights

  • On May 2, 1951, Saul Rogovin was pitching for the Detroit Tigers, Joe Ginsberg was catching, and Lou Limmer came to bat for the Philadelphia Athletics. Limmer, a rookie, hit a pinch-hit HR in the 9th inning to tie the game, but the Tigers ultimately prevailed. “Never before, or since in major-league baseball has there been a Jewish pitcher (Rogovin), pitching to a Jewish batter (Limmer), with a Jewish catcher (Ginsberg) behind home plate” (see article, box score).
