Why We Love Baseball: A History in 50 Moments

Sponsored by Ravitz Family Foundation

Why We Love Base­ball is a love let­ter to base­ball, a fresh and heart­felt look at the game’s great­est moments and how they con­tin­ue to grab at our hearts. Whether it’s Willie Mays’ over-the-shoul­der catch, Babe Ruth’s called shot, or Sandy Koufax’s per­fect game, these time­less and mag­i­cal moments take us to the heart of why we love base­ball after almost 150 years. The con­nec­tion between Jews and base­ball is par­tic­u­lar­ly strong, and has always drawn Jew­ish atten­tion, whether it was play­ers like Hank Green­berg and Sandy Koufax, broad­cast­ers like Mel Allen, Gary Cohen, and Al Michaels, writ­ers like Roger Kahn, Lawrence Rit­ter and Don­ald Honig, exec­u­tives like Theo Epstein and Bud Selig. The Jew­ish love of base­ball is pow­er­ful and enduring. Attendees encouraged to bring baseball memorabilia to share.
