After a 162-game regular season and two rounds of playoffs, it's time for baseball's Fall Classic: the World Series. Starting on Wednesday, the Texas Rangers — with Jewish Major Leaguers Scott Feldman and Ian Kinsler — take on the St. Louis Cardinals.
In the 55-year history of the World Series Most Valuable Player Award (which started in 1955), two Jewish players — Larry Sherry (1959) and Hall of Famer Sandy Koufax (1963 and 1965) — won MVP honors three times. Steve Yeager, who converted to Judaism following his playing career, shared the 1981 World Series MVP hardware with fellow Dodgers Ron Cey and Pedro Guerrero.
