(Jerusalem Post) Ryan Braun became baseball's first Jewish Rookie of the Year.
Braun, the slugging third baseman for the Milwaukee Brewers, picked up the award Monday in the National League. In the voting by the Baseball Writers of America, Braun edged Colorado Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, 128-126.
Although Braun was never raised Jewish by his Israeli dad, he seems to take an immense pride in his Jewish heritage.
Note: While Braun will probably decide to remain in the US because of his career, hopefully he will consider signing up with the Israel Baseball League (if he has time during the off season).
