Jews and Baseball traces traces the Jewish involvement in the history of the sport from the game’s earliest days, through the tumultuous war years to today’s All-Star games. By bringing to life dramatic moments in this history, including Hank Greenberg’s support of Jackie Robinson and how the legendary Sandy Koufax pioneered rights for players, the film demonstrates how Jews shaped baseball, and baseball shaped them. Narrated by Dustin Hoffman.
Lunch, preceding the film, will include hot dogs and beef brisket sliders on Hawaiian rolls, bagged potato chips, cole slaw, dessert and popcorn.
Cost is $7 for UH members and $8 for non-members.
