Jewish Baseball History
DATING BACK TO THE 1800s
The history of Jews in baseball dates back to Lipman Pike, one of the game’s first stars in the 1800s. Track the timeline to learn about the historical moments.
Erskine Mayer not only was the first Jewish pitcher to win 20 games, he also was the first to appear in a World Series. His second consecutive 20-win season helped lead the Phillies to the National League title in 1915. Then he made Jewish baseball history in Game 2. Alas, he pitched well, but lost a 2-1 decision to Boston.
