Ron Blomberg is viewed as a trailblazer: in addition to being the first designated hitter in the history of major league baseball? an accident of fate?he was also the first significant Jewish Yankee. The only lantzman who preceded Blomberg to the Bronx hid behind the pseudonym of Jimmie Reese. Blomberg didn't believe in hiding, either from pitchers with overpowering fastballs or the baseball fans of New York. A witness to cross burnings and synagogue bombings in his youth, Blomberg felt relieved when New York's large Jewish population embraced him. He loved people almost as much as he loved to eat. And so, he wore his religion on his sleeve. Ron Blomberg's story is more than a baseball tale, and more than a religious tale. It's the story of a Designated Hebrew?and there is no other tale quite like it.… (mais)

An interesting enough account of Ron Blomberg's career. Blomberg was the first Jewish Yankee (other then Jimmy Reese, who played for the Yanks for two seasons in the late 20s) and by a quirk of luck became the first player to come to bat as a DH when the rule was instituted in 1973. In the telling of his tale, Blomberg sticks to himself only, offering very little other than fully rehashed stories about the clubhouses and dugouts in which he spent his years as a Yankee. And even in telling his own tale, Blomberg offers precious little in interesting anecdote form. I was happy to read this, in that it filled in some blanks in my teenage memories of Blomberg and those Yankee teams of the early 70s, but other than that I didn't learn a whole lot here. One interesting tidbit, though. I was sure I had read on various occassions that Thurman Munson had more than a trace of anti-Semintism about him. But Blomberg portrays Munson as one of the four or five Yankees who consistently supported him when others expressed belief that Blomberg was malingering through his many injuries. That was nice to read. ( )
