A miracle hath occurred!   That’s right, Ladies and Geetle Beans, an actual miracle, a wondrous and previously thought impossible event of biblical proportion and implication– THE YESHIVA UNIVERSITY LADY MACCABEE WOMEN’S SOFTBALL TEAM went to Sarah Lawrence University yesterday and won the first two games they played, ever.

The Yeshiva University Lady Maccabees.

The Yeshiva University Lady Maccabees

The final scores were 11-3, and 20-6.  We dominated.  We made plays.  We hit home runs.  We burned but were not consumed.  Not by might, and not by power, but by spirit alone, we did what no other team in YU history has done, that is, win the program’s first ever game [s].

I must say, it’s a well coached unit.

Congrats to the girls.

You will never forget this.

I do not have much time to write.  For tomorrow, as part of my duty as the King of All Jewish Baseball, I am flying to Tokyo for the International Baseball Federation Annual World Congress.  I am giving a presentation on the connection between proper base running techniques and shamanism.  In seriousness, I am going to place votes on behalf of Israel on several hot international baseball issues– reinstating baseball as an Olympic sport, how to grow the game in developing nations, and the merits of continental breakfast buffets.  And in ALL seriousness, I am going so I can write about it, which, ultimately, is why I do anything…

See you tomorrow in Tokyo!

    Fish- congrats on all the success so far. You’re doing some great things and it couldn’t happen to a better guy. Love reading the blogs and keeping up with your travels and regal experiences.
    Let me know if there’s ever anything I can do to help spread KIJB news to the masses.
