Yeshiva League Hockey Rankings (Shouldn't SAR be Number 1?)

Here are the latest rankings of yeshiva league hockey.

And here's a look at the beginnings of yeshiva league hockey, from Jewish Hoops America.

And while we're on Route 17, all the Jewish kids up at SUNY Binghamton ought to get into town and catch Jason Bailey, a Jewish right-wing (clearly a Jabotinsky fan) for the Binghamton Senators. Bailey is suing his previous team, the Anaheim Ducks, parent team of the Bakersfield Condors, because of the unrelenting anti-Semitism he experienced from the Bakersfield coach and assistant coach. The Ducks traded Bailey to the Ottowa Senators, who sent Bailey down to Binghamton, in the American Hockey League.

Someday he'll be skating in the Garden with the Senators, but in the meantime, any hockey player, particularly someone who grew up in Ontario, has to love playing in the Binghamton winter of New York's "Southern Tier," better than California any day.

Maybe the Chabad of Binghamton should take the SUNY kids on a class trip to cheer Bailey on.

And then, what do you say we all go to Bakersfield and crash those guys into the boards.

While throughout the years there have always been famous and iconic Jewish ball players who have made it to the Big Show, actually we are not so much in a renaissance but in a heyday in terms of numbers of Jews in big-league lineups [about a dozen this year, according to estimates].
