As the Rangers prepare for Game 1 with the Giants Wednesday night, I couldn’t help but be reminded of some baseball history. Seeing the Giants with all of their bearded relief pitchers reminded me of this team from the past:
The House of David was a baseball team was a Jewish religious colony that started in Benton Harbor, Michigan. They had a barnstorming baseball team that played fundraising games across the country off and on from 1920 through the mid-50’s. Their teams were famous for their bearded players and their long hair.
