Jews and Baseball: An American Love Story
A portrayal of the contributions of Jewish major leaguers and the special meaning that baseball has had in the lives of American Jews. Beyond sports, this is a story of Jewish assimilation, heroism, passing on traditions, the shattering of stereotypes and Black-Jewish solidarity during the civil rights movement. Spotlighting mythic Hall of Famers Sandy Koufax and Hank Greenberg, the film also profiles legends Al Rosen, Yogi Berra, Norm Sherry, Bob Feller as well as modern All-Stars Shawn Green. With Dustin Hoffmans narration, and script by Pulitzer Prize-winning sportswriter Ira Berkow, this film is a celebration of pride and passion for all ages and faiths. Appropriate for age 11+.
