29, Ian Kinsler hit his 27th home run of 2016, breaking the collective single-season record for homers (114) by Jews.That is, reported Jewish Baseball News, the collective number of homers hit in one season by all Jewish major leaguers added together. Along with Kinsler, this summer’s “murderer’s row” included Ryan Braun (30) and Joc Pederson (25), only the second time (2010 being the other) that three Jews each hit at least 25 homers in one year.Each structure is at least 10 m high and comprises a cantilever with an outstretched net suspended over the sea and large stones suspended from ropes as counterweights at the other end.Each installation is operated by a team of up to six fishermen.
The owner denied and thugs later came to the home, tied up the woman's two sisters who were living there as well, and stabbed the owner to death.
Last month, as the baseball regular season was drawing to a close, the 6-foot Alex Bregman, a leading rookie, Jewish or otherwise, with the Houston Astros, hit a pitch from the Cubs’ John Lackey over Houston’s right-field fence of Houston’s Minute Maid Park.
Perhaps the world will little note nor long remember what Bregman accomplished, but according to Jewish Baseball News, Bregman’s homer was the 3,000th round tripper by a Jew dating back to Pike of the Haymakers in 1871.
In 1871, before the invention of the telephone, the mail-order catalogue, or barbed wire, five years before the Chicago Cubs played the first of 21,056 regular-season games, back in those mists of time, a 5-foot-8 gentleman named Lipman Pike became the first Jewish fellow to get paid to play baseball. Y.) Haymakers, Pike hit four home runs, a mighty feat in the National Association, a loose collection of teams pre-dating the National League.
After all, in those days the outfield fence was further afield, fences intended to keep non-paying spectators out rather than providing a reasonable target for men such as Pike.
