Film Explores Role Of Baseball In Lives Of American Jews

METUCHEN – The Forum Theatre Arts Center in Metuchen will host a screening of “Jews and Baseball, An American Love Story,” on Sunday, June 26 at 5 p.m. The event will be hosted by former New York Yankees player Ron Blomberg, who will conduct a question and answer session at 4 p.m. before the film.

“Jews And Baseball” portrays the contributions of Jewish major leaguers and the special meaning that baseball has had in the lives of American Jews. More than a film about sports, this is a story of immigration, assimilation, bigotry, heroism, the passing on of traditions, and the shattering of stereotypes. The story is brought to life through Dustin Hoffman’s narration, and interviews with dozens of passionate and articulate fans, writers, executives, and especially players including Al Rosen, Kevin Youkilis, Shawn Green, Bob Feller, Yogi Berra, and a rare interview with the Hall of Fame pitcher Sandy Koufax.

Admission is $12 for adults and $8 for children 13 and younger. The Forum Theatre Arts Center is located at 314 Main Street in Metuchen. For more information, call 1-732-548-5600 or visit
