Description

In 1927, "the Hebrew University of Jerusalem . . . played baseball with the university's first president Judan Magnes playing second base . . . ."

Josh Chetwynd, Baseball in Europe (McFarland, 2008), page 210.

Jack Kugelmass, "Jews, Sports and the Rites of Citizenship," p. 142 adds (based on a 1967 letter to the editor of a Jerusalem newspaper) that the game was played by Americans, mostly Jewish but including some Quakers and others, students and teachers. The nines were captained by Dr. Bluestone and Mr. Magnes. The game was played at the Maccabi playing field, behind the Old Shimon Hatzaki Quarter.

The Israel Association of Baseball was founded Dec. 1986.
