Seven Jewish players finished
the 1966 baseball season in the
major leagues. It is no surprise
that Sandy Koufax led this group
with another fantastic year: The
phenomenal lefthander topped the
National League in every pitching
category except one. He was first
in earned-run average, 1.73; wins,
27: innings pitched, 323; strikeouts,
317; and complete games. 27. He
missed the won-lost percentage
At the close of every campaign
it is necessary to sum up just what
record Sandy set. He captured the
ERA crown for the fifth consecu-
tive year, a N.L. record. His 27
victories are the most ever re-
corded by a N.L. southpaw. His
third season with over 300 strike-
outs is a major league record, and
he is now seventh on the all-time
strikeout list. If his arm holds up,
the end of next year will find him
in third place and the top left-
h a n d e r in strikeouts. Only Cy
Young and Walter Johnson will be
left to shoot at. Koufax's lifetime
record is now 165 won and 87 lost.
Ken Holtzman, the other. Jew-
ish southpaw ended with an 11-
16 mark and recorded the most
wins for the last place Chicago
Cubs. He had an ERA of 3.79
and 171 strikeouts in 221 innings.
Holtzman's biggest win of the
year came on Sunday, Sept. 25, the
day after Yom Kippur. He defeated
Sandy Koufax 2-1, and allowed the
Dodgers just two hits. The meet-
ing of the two Jewish hurlers came
about because of Yom Kippur.
Koufax was to pitch on Saturday,
instead he went on Sunday, the
day Holtzman was to start for the
It was one of the rare times, if
not the first, that both starting
pitchers in a major league game
were Jews. Holtzman had a no-
hitter for eight innings. while Kou-
fax gave the Cubs 'just four safe-
ties. Prior to the game the New
World, official publication of the
Catholic archdiocese of Chicago,
presented Holtzman with a large

Larry Sherry of the Detroit
Tigers enjoyed his best season

in some years. The bull-pen star
had an 8-5 mark and 17 saves.
This made him the fourth best
fireman in the majors. His 53
appearances on the mound broke
a Detroit record that had stood
for 43 years.
Moe Drabowsky has his best
season ever as he helped the Balti-
more Orioles to the American
League' pennant. Used mainly in
relief, Drabowsky was 6-0 with
five saves.
Art Shamsky batted .231 as a
pinch-hitter and sometime starter.
Despite his low average the Cin-
cinnati Red outfielder hit 21 hom-
ers in 234 times at bat, and had
47 runs batted in. He was second
on the club in home runs. Sham-
sky wasn't happy about his batting
average. "I think I take too many
third strikes," he said.
Barry Latman never got off
the ground. The Houston Astro
righthander was plagued by in-
juries and posted a 2-7 mark,
although he did pitch well in
relief at times. He was out from
Aug. 18 to Sept. 25 with a pulled
muscle in his side.
Mike Epstein ended the year
with the Baltimore Orioles. He
played in eight games and went 2
for 11 at bat. His best game was
against the California Angels; he
belted a triple with the bases
loaded to win the game 6-3.
In a season-end poll of Interna-
tional League sports writers, Ep-
stein was voted the rookie of the
year. He was also named to the
league all-star team at first base.

Sandy Koufax on strikeouts: "A
strikeout is hard to throw. I'd
much rather get a batter out on
one pitch than have to throw three
by him."

On the occasion of the tenth
anniversary of the Sinai Campaign,
the Israel Government Coins and
Medals Corporation has issued a
commemorative medal.
The medal, designed by Zvi
Narkis of Tel Aviv, commemorates
the tranquillity which followed the
campaign rather than portrays the
conflict. The design of the obverse
presents a ship passing through
the Straits of Tiran, beneath a
great sun. The inscriptions, in
Hebrew and in English, are: "Sinai
Campaign—Tenth Anniversary; the
year, 5727-1966;" and, from Pro-
verbs 3:17: "And all her paths are
On the reverse is found the
verse in Hebrew, "A time for war
and a time for peace," and also
the emblem of the Israel Defense
Army (a sword and an olive
branch). The same verse, which is
from Ecclesiastes 3:8, is repeated
in English around the edge.
The number of the medal, the
emblem of the State, and the words
"State of Israel," in Hebrew and
in English, appear on the edge
of the medal. Silver 935 appears
on the silver medals.
Further information can be ob-
tained from the Israel Government
Trade Commissioner's Office, 850
Third Ave., New York.
