Israel Baseball League: Koufax Gets Drafted

Israel's first Baseball League just concluded their first draft.
Forty-one years after he retired from baseball, Hall of Fame pitcher Sandy Koufax was the final player chosen in the draft to stock the six teams for the inaugural season of the Israel Baseball League... “His selection is a tribute to the esteem with which he is held by everyone associated with this league,” said former big leaguer Aret Shamsky, who will manage the Miracle. “It’s been 41 years between starts for him. If he’s rested and ready to take the mound again, we want him on our team.”
If he can still pitch then lets' sign him up. You can never have too many Hall of Fame arms.
