Jodi Vessey and Charlie Eshbach talk about this weekend's event at Temple Beth-El in Portland, A Night of Jewish Baseball 207

When people talk baseball, they usually focus on a player's ability to hit or pitch. What faith they adhere to is rarely considered.

Greg Harris, a baseball aficionado from the Chicago area, is out to change that. He happens to be Jewish and wanted to connect the two communities he loves.

Harris started jewishbaseballplayer.com and has organized a series of unique events around the country that are drawing baseball fans of all faiths.

This Sunday, one of them is taking place in Portland at Temple Beth-El. Night of Jewish Baseball - A Tribute to William Troubh.
