BREAKING NEWS: Jews Can Play Baseball, Too!

JTA, the self-described global news service of Jewish people, has a breaking news story for you: Jews make baseball all-star squads!

Yes, it's true. In fact, Jews outnumber Giants on this year's roster. "At least three players of Jewish descent" were named to the roster, though there may be more players with unknown Jewish blood powering their All-Star performances.

Red Sox first baseman Kevin Youkilis, who openly identifies as a Jew, was named a starter. Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun was also named a starter, but only identifies himself as half-Jewish. Ian Kinsler, Rangers second baseman and another half-Jew, is a reserve.

Thanks, JTA! I was worried that MLB would be Jew-less after Shawn Green retires, but I guess there will always be something[1] drawing Jews to baseball.

1. The Undrafted Free Agent would like to apologize for perpetuating hurtful stereotypes. We are just frustrated that anyone found people of Jewish descent making an All-Star team all that newsworthy.


About the Undrafted Free Agent

Ron Crimson was the only player on the high school roster to not get in a game. He couldn't argue with the decision, because he sucked. Needless to say, yet stated anyway, when he entered the NBA draft following his sophomore season in college, he went undrafted. Now, Ron Crimson is the Undrafted Free Agent.

Look at This!

There's nothing here; I just needed to fill some space. Space eater! Space eater! Space eater! Space eater! Space eater! Space eater! Space eater! Space eater! Space eater! I also needed to balance it out a bit.
