Robert Tufts, adjunct instructor of management at Yeshiva University and retired Major League Baseball Players Association pitcher, participated in a panel about American Jews and baseball at the Museum of Jewish Heritage – A Living Memorial to the Holocaust on April 6, 2014. The discussion, which also featured author Larry Ruttman, former executive secretary of the Major League Donald Fehr, and longtime New York Times baseball writer Murray Chass, touched on baseball today and yesterday; the fascinating and revealing personal lives of people involved in the game, including the panelists themselves; and American Jewish life in the United States over the last century. The speakers also offered their takes on the coming season and examined the larger-than-life role of Jews in baseball.
