Has the Anti-Defamation League Lost the Plot?

I rubbed my eyes with incredulity when I read bizarre anti-Israel/pro-Black Lives Matter statements emanating from Jonathan Greenblatt, CEO of the ADL. Has he completely forgotten the ADL's purpose?

Putin to Arab League Summit: ‘Status Quo on Palestine Unacceptable’

The annual Arab League summit's agenda includes combating terrorism and the ongoing civil wars in Libya and Syria.

Tennessee Team Donates Uniforms to Israel Football League

UT gave up its sponsorship contract with Adidas to Nike, and as a result a large load of completely unused gear became useless.

The JVP claims to be a Jewish movement that values peace but instead promotes the BDS Movement, supports the "Palestinian right of return," and works to undermine true peace and security for Israel.

Turkey… Goes Turkey (Video)

In Turkey, the referee attacks the player. Seems in August, one soccer official decided enough was enough. During a low-league soccer match in Turkey between Altinorduspor (red) and Pazarspor (blue), a Pazarspor player was preparing to take a free kick when one of the linesman suddenly ran out onto the field and socked an Altinorduspor player right in the face.

Israel And The World Baseball Classic

For the first time, Israel will participate in the qualifying round of the World Baseball Classic. That's the good news. The bad news concerns the dates they'll be playing in Florida. Earlier in the year it was thought the early rounds would start in other countries before moving to Florida in November. Assuming Israel would still be in the WBC games, the Florida site would be Roger Dean Stadium in Jupiter.

What I Did On My ‘Mancation’

Last year I told you about my "mancation" (men only) to a city to check out its Jewish community and major league team and ballpark. Last year it was Pittsburgh and Cincinnati; this year's first "mancation" destination was Cleveland.

The Delmon Young Saga

Every time Delmon Young come to bat, gets on base or makes a play in the field, we are reminded of his anti-Semitic rant in New York back in April.

Abe Stark’s Famous Sign

The 40th yahrzeit of Abe Stark, who died at 77 in July 1972, is almost upon us. Those of you who remember Ebbets Field, abandoned by the Dodgers in 1957, can recall the Abe Stark sign on the bottom of the scoreboard embedded in the right field wall.

Playoffs: Lakewood Heimishe Bake Shoppe, Segwayz advance

League observers have pegged Rimon as the championship favorite, after their recent 23-2 landslide win over Bagelsbergs clinched the top seed, and gave them a perfect undefeated record in the regular season.

Israeli Football Team Loses First International Match

Israel's American football team took the field last Thursday in Petah Tikva, and lost its first international match by a score of 49-6 to...

Jackie Robinson: A Real Mensch

I was lucky enough to have met and interviewed many Hall of Famers including Joe DiMaggio, Hank Greenberg, Ted Williams and Stan Musial. I also had the chance to meet and gab with many of the stars from the old Negro Leagues who went on to play in the major leagues after Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier – Hank Aaron, Ernie Banks, Larry Doby, Monte Irvin and Satchel Paige. But I never had the chance to meet Jackie Robinson.

Play Ball!

The 2012 baseball season should be a most interesting one. Every game is important. No longer can a team just play for the Wild Card spot and have an equal shot with the three division winners at participating in the World Series (as St. Louis did last year).

German Federation Condemns Fans Who Hitler-Saluted Israeli Player

The German soccer federation condemned an anti-Semitic act involving Kaiserslautern's Israel striker Itay Shechter, 24, and says such abuse has to be "nipped in the bud" and "we must act decisively." Sunday's taunts came the day after his team's 4-0 defeat by Mainz – their fourth straight loss – in which Shechter did not play.

At Catcher… Myron Ginsberg

Sixty years ago and fifty years ago. 1952 and 1962. They were memorable years for many of us.

Fantasy Come True

Seventy-eight degrees and sunny. That's what it was that Thursday afternoon in November when I arrived in Tampa, site of the Yankees Fantasy Camp. That's what it was that Thursday afternoon in November when I arrived in Tampa, site of the Yankees Fantasy Camp. After checking into the Sheraton Suites where the campers were staying for the Monday through Saturday camp, I shuttled to George M. Steinbrenner Field (where the Yanks play during spring training and also the home of the Tampa Yankees, three levels below the major leagues), to join the camp in progress.

Another Season In The Books

Wow! What a finish to the 2011 baseball season. Even before the interesting seven-game World Series won by St. Louis, there was incredible drama in the final month.

On Jewish Pitchers – And Some Departed Heroes

Jason Marquis became the first Jewish pitcher in 31 years to collect 100 career victories. Pitching for the Washington Nationals this year, Marquis (pronounced Mar-kee) earned his first big-league win ten years ago by beating the Mets at Shea Stadium while pitching for the Atlanta Braves. Jason, who'll turn 33 on August 2, has also pitched for the St. Louis Cardinals, Chicago Cubs and Colorado Rockies.

A Mighty Fine Feller

Bob Feller was stubborn and opinionated - and, I must admit, I didn't care for him too much at our first meeting over 30 years ago.
