Baseball’s Most Unusual Team: Part 1

Welcome to The House of David

Major League Baseball starts this month. Opening day with all the inherent hoopla is somewhere in the neighborhood of March 26th. This reminded me of the most unusual and certainly one of the most interesting baseball teams every to play the sport.

They were known as the House of David.

They were a hit in the early decades of the last century and there is even rumor, (not yet verified by this author) that the immortal Babe Ruth played against them. They were so famous there is a blues song named for them.

Most of us will think they were a Jewish team. They were not. That is part of why they are so interesting.

The House of David was an Adventist cult that banned alcohol, sex and shaving. But it also loved baseball – its teams toured the country to enraptured crowds, and unusually positive results.
