Need another Passover celebration? Listen to the Menschwarmers’ annual Jewish baseball seder

By now, you’ve probably had one seder. You may have even had two seders. But it’s time for an annual CJN tradition totally unlike those slow-moving family get-togethers: the Menschwarmers’ Jewish baseball seder.

Combining the start of baseball season with the week of Passover, our Jewish sports experts have rewritten the haggadah to focus on Jewish baseball legends and potential future stars, from Hank Greenberg to Spencer Horwitz, with commemorations and celebrations in between.

And before that, as always, the boys give a roundup of the latest news of Jews in sports, including Jewish NHL stars dominating the playoffs, Max Homa’s near-win at the 2024 Masters Tournament and whether New Orleans Pelicans fans consider themselves Zionists.


Menschwarmers is hosted by James Hirsh and Gabe Pulver, and produced and edited by Michael Fraiman. Our intro music is by Coby Lipovitch, and our outro music is “Organ Grinder Swing” by chēēZ π.
