Creating a baseball lineup of the greatest Jewish players of all time is subjective, but I’ve compiled a list based on players who have had significant accomplishments and impact on the game. Here’s a suggested lineup of nine players, along with their primary positions:
Rod Carew (2B) - Although he converted to Judaism after his playing career, Carew is widely regarded as one of the best hitters in baseball history, winning seven batting titles and racking up over 3,000 hits. Ian Kinsler (SS) - A four-time All-Star and a two-time Gold Glove winner, Kinsler had a strong career as an offensive and defensive force, playing primarily at second base but able to handle shortstop as well. Hank Greenberg (1B) - A two-time MVP and five-time All-Star, Greenberg was one of the premier power hitters of his era, amassing over 300 home runs and leading the league in RBIs four times. Shawn Green (RF) - A two-time All-Star and a Gold Glove winner, Green had a powerful bat and hit over 300 home runs during his career, while also being an effective defensive outfielder. Ryan Braun (LF) - The 2011 National League MVP and a six-time All-Star, Braun was a dynamic offensive player, hitting over 300 home runs and stealing over 200 bases in his career. Al Rosen (3B) - A four-time All-Star and the 1953 American League MVP, Rosen was a power-hitting third baseman who led the league in home runs and RBIs twice during his career. Kevin Youkilis (DH) - A three-time All-Star and a Gold Glove winner, Youkilis was known for his plate discipline and ability to hit for both average and power. Brad Ausmus (C) - A three-time Gold Glove winner and an All-Star, Ausmus was known primarily for his excellent defense and game-calling abilities as a catcher. Art Shamsky (CF) - While not as accomplished as some of the others on this list, Shamsky was a solid hitter and versatile outfielder, able to play all three outfield positions.
Starting Pitcher: Sandy Koufax – Arguably the greatest Jewish player of all time, Koufax was a three-time Cy Young Award winner, a World Series MVP, and a seven-time All-Star. He dominated the league during the 1960s, posting a remarkable 2.76 career ERA and throwing four no-hitters, including a perfect game.
