Ron Blomberg, the first designated hitter in the major leagues, will talk about his life and experiences playing for the New York Yankees in the late 1960s and 1970s at a bagel and latke Chanukah breakfast. The Sunday, December 6 talk at Temple Israel and JCC in Ridgewood, sponsored by the synagogue’s Brandeis Men’s Club, begins at 10:30 a.m. Mr. Blomberg will sign items of memorabilia and copies of his autobiography, “Designated Hebrew: The Ron Blomberg Story,” with commentary by Dan Schlossberg. Bookends in Ridgewood will sell the book before the breakfast.
The talk is open to the community. The shul is at 475 Grove St. For information, call (201) 444-9320 or go to www.synagogue.org.
