Koufax Comeback?

By Steve

Sandy Koufax was the final player chosen in the inaugural draft of the Israel Baseball League, drafted by the Modi'in Miracle. "His selection is a tribute to the esteem with which he is held by everyone associated with this league," said Miracle manager Art Shamsky. "It's been 41 years between starts for him. If he's rested and ready to take the mound again, we want him on our team."

Of course, if they'd checked this out beforehand, they'd have known it was a waste of time...

  1. On a more serious note, our local newspaper (which has been in the news because we were the "host" newspaper for the Donks debate last week at State) reported a local player who played at a D-II private school has been drafted by the same team as Koufax was, and he is going to Israel to start practice and play for the Israeli league.
