An extra look at news about the national pastime.
* Jewish Baseball News reminds that Sunday was “Super Sam Fuld Cape Day.”
Even teammate Johnny Damon got into the spirit of things, wearing the fashion accessory as he delivered the lineup card to home plate. Surely there must be some rule against that.
* Don’t look for Ike Davis to return to the Mets lineup anytime soon. He still can’t run and was returning to New York for an MRI. Woulda, coulda, shoulda. I wonder what the team would be like if Davis, David Wright, Johan Santana, Jason Bay, Carlos Beltran and Jose Pagan had been healthy from Day One. Of course, any team can point to the disabled list and ponder such things, but it certainly seems the Mets have had more than their share of player-days lost.
* Well, he can always atone on Yom Kippur: Ian Kinsler feels badly for letting his team down by getting ejected for the third time in two years. Nice slide show, too.
* In case you haven’t seen it, here’s a trailer from the documentary, Jews and Baseball: An American Love Story, which will be aired on Monday, June 6, at 8 p.m. on Channel 13 with yours truly serving as a talking head during the intermissions.
* Lest you think Jewish Heritage games are only for the Major League fans, the St. Paul Saints (!) will hold one of their own on June 12.
* And here’s something you don’t see every day, thank God.
