From the time when immigrant families saw baseball as a means of becoming recognizably American, the Jewish love affair with the game has never really abated. In thematic chapters with a continuing narative flow, the authors cover both the brilliant stars (e.g., Hank Greenberg) and the obscure players. Just as important, they tell the stories of sports writers, coaches, executives and team owners, manufacturers, etc. The first of two projected volumes and a good addition to large baseball collections.
