I take a “big tent” approach to defining who’s Jewish. I do not observe strict Jewish law when determining if a player is Jewish. If a player is born to Jewish parents, self-identifies as Jewish, has willingly converted to Judaism, does not practice another faith, and does not object to being identified as a Jew, I consider them Jewish. For players with Jewish heritage who do not self-identify as Jewish — for example, one parent is Jewish, another parent is not and the player was raised Christian — I opt to use the same “rules” that the World Baseball Classic does. I’ll include anyone with a Jewish parent, grandparent or spouse, so long as the player themselves does not object, and will indicate that the player is “of Jewish heritage.”
