Jewish Baseball on Christmas! Because all the stores are closed.

Fans, here are some links to enjoy before you head off to the Chinese restaurant and a movie.

At the indispensable Kaplan's Korner, Ron Kaplan of the New Jersey Jewish News details what some "Jewish Sports Personalities" wanted for Hannukah. It was an honor to participate!

Seriously, though- bookmark this site. Endless enjoyment.

Jews in Baseball has a compiled list of most total bases by a Jewish hitter, season-by-season.
I think it is worth noting that 4 of the top 11 were by Shawn Green- he was a far better player than he gets credit for, thanks to that early decline.

The site editor, Josh Borenstein, also has a piece on Bob Melvin, Jewish manager, though as I said to Josh, his religion is Jew-be-determined.

And here's a piece about one of my favorite Jewish players ever, Andy Cohen, by a terrific writer, Irwin Cohen.

Last but not least, you couldn't have Christmas without a video tribute to Brad Ausmus, could you? I didn't think so.

Now let's go have a terrific fifth night of Hanukkah!
