Ralph Branca Is Jewish

Ralph Branca, always a Mensch!

Thro a tremendous piece of reporting, last week we learned that there are actually 161 (not 160: well, the numbers are not exactly exact) Jewish ballplayers in the history of Major League Baseball. Ralph Branca, welcome to The Tribe! Whether today you consider yourself Jewish or Catholic, Mr. Branca, you are a Mensch in every way.
