Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder Shawn Green, or as he’s known to his fellow members of the tribe, the Notorious J.E.W., has chosen to come to New York City, effectively, if not literally, choosing the Diamond District over the Diamondbacks.
â€œNew York is head and shoulders the largest Jewish population in the country, if not the world, and it will be an interesting and fun experience for me,â€ he said. Or at least it will be until NY-area synagogues start battling for his contribution to their respective building funds.
As a Met, Green will play at Shea, where they have kosher hot dogs; although, as someone who played only one of his two Yom Kippur games, we’re not sure this matters.
Welcome to New York, Shawn!
