Jewish Baseball Players

Many of you may not be aware that there are two Jewish players on the Boston Red Sox: Gable Kapler and Kevin Youkilis.  It just so happens that Youkilis is from Cincinnati and he attended the same high school as my niece and nephew.

In August 2006, TV stars Denis Leary and Lenny Clarke were guest announcers at a Red Sox game, where they discovered that Youkilis was Jewish.  They proceeded to make light of Mel Gibson’s recent anti-semitic comments.  You can watch the video excerpt from the game by clicking on the screen shot below (Youkilis makes two great plays while they’re talking about baseball and Mel Gibson).
