The book is the companion to the Boxerman's 2007 publication, Jews and Baseball: Volume 1, Entering the American Mainstream, 1871-1948 Jews And Baseball: Volume I: Entering the American Mainstream, 1871-1948.
As its title implies, Jews And Baseball: Volume 2 Jews and Baseball: Volume 2, The Post-Greenberg Years, 1949-2008 covers the history of Jews in baseball following the retirement of the game's first Jewish superstar, Detroit Tigers slugger and Hall of Famer Hank Greenberg.
The Boxermans' comfortable writing style combines a mix of detailed statistics, history, and on- and off-the-field anecdotes, and the book features a bevy of fascinating baseball minutiae.
The Boxermans deserve high praise, indeed, for their efforts. While most certainly a noble effort, the book may leave advanced readers slightly disappointed, like watching a close game shortened by rain.
The Boxermans omit some critical details, and overlook items of interest that could have added additional color to the book.
