Baseball’s Most Unusual Team: Part 2

Most of the players grew their beards out to show respect towards the God of Israel, while others wore false beards. They were known for their skill, and played against some of the greatest teams in the country. The House of David played against Major League, Minor League, independent and Negro League teams. At one point, the community had three separate barnstorming teams touring the country, playing and evangelizing wherever they went.

The House of David teams were famous for inventing “pepper”, and various other baseball tricks, being given the name the Harlem Globetrotters of Baseball.

Let us not be naive — the House of David sent their teams out to make money. There were secondary reasons which included preaching their gospel and bringing tourists to see where they lived, but it was all tied to a support system for the community.
