TEAM JEW.S.A.

31 Jul

Do not be alarmed!  It is I, the King of All Jewish Baseball, only with a new header photo.  And that is just the beginning, a sample if you will, from the upcoming photo series and film, The King of Jewish Baseball, by Danny Dwyer, himself the King of All Slovenian/Irish Filmmaking.  Here is the full image…

magical, isn’t it?

I apologize for the delay since my last post.  It’s been 5, almost 6, days.  But I am preparing something very special for you, The Greatest Ejection of All Time! – From Saturdays’s game with the A’s in the Zorrilla.  It’s not quite ready.  So we will proceed…

There was an article about Shlomo in the Wall Street Journal yesterday!  Check it out.  Bandito!

It’s Tuesday, July 31st.  I am going to LA tomorrow.  As King of All Jewish Baseball, I was the logical choice for head coach of the Junior National Team for the 2013 Maccabi Games, and we have our West Coast tryouts on Sunday.  We have three tryouts– LA, Chicago, and New York, all in August (the 5th, the 19th, and the 26th respectively). We’ll name the team in September.  The Games are in Israel July of 2013.

The Juniors baseball team is theoretically comprised of the best Jewish baseball players in the country 18 years-old or younger.  There have been some good players and coaches in the past.  Max Fried who played on the team last time around, 4 years-ago, in 2009, was just selected 7th overall in this year’s draft.  Our team should win the gold medal, another demonstration on the workings of global baseball.  Like our team for the WBC, we have access to a better pool of players.  I hope.  We’ll see Sunday.  The difference is these kids will be Americans representing America in Israel, not Americans representing Israel in America.

I’ll see Matt in LA.  Matt and I spent our formative years together playing ball and rapping our hearts out to Biggie Smalls and Dr. Dre and the Wu-Tang Clan in Shaker Heights, Ohio where we’re from.  When we were 16, at a tournament in Kentucky, Matt struck a guy out on a 3-2 bases loaded curveball and I thought right then that he would be a major league baseball player.  And he is!

California, America, prepare yourselfs!  KOJB is coming.
