Date & Time
Temple Israel of Lawrence invites you to a Zoom presentation of AN EVENING WITH RON BLOMBERG on Wednesday, July 22, 2020, at 7:30 p.m.
Ron Blomberg, baseball's first designated hitter and the #1 overall pick of the 1967 MLB Amateur Draft, will talk baseball. "The great Jewish hope" of the NY Yankees during the 1970's, Ron's is an icon of boyhood dreams achieved. The story of Ron's life and career is one that can inspire anyone to believe their goals, no matter how difficult they may appear, can be achieved by maintaining a positive, determined attitude.
Ron's journey to Yankee Stadium was not an easy one, as he would have to not only battle opposing pitchers but also the prejudice and persecution his Jewish heritage often provoked.
