Description
Joseph Siegman discusses his book, “Jewish Sport Legends: The International Jewish Sports Hall of Fame.” He begins by describing the life of early baseball legend Lip Pike, who was the first professional Jewish baseball player. He talks about the evolution of the book, and that it was a project he created for the International Jewish Sports Hall of Fame. Siegman discusses the history of the Maccabiah Games, and speaks about his own experience witnessing a bridge collapse at the 1997 ceremony. He talks about his decision to group the book by sport rather than year. He ends the interview by talking about Jews who refused to participate in the 1936 Olympic Games.
