It is often stated incorrectly that Hall of Famer Rod Carew converted to Judaism, although it is true that he married a Jewish woman and they raised their children as Jews. This misconception was most famously perpetuated in two works:

  • A 1976 Esquire magazine article, "All-Time All-Star Argument Starter", by sportswriter Harry Stein, himself Jewish. Stein named Carew as the starting second baseman on his All-Jewish team.
  • "The Chanukah Song" by Jewish American comedian and actor Adam Sandler. He explicitly stated in his original 1994 version that Carew converted to Judaism, and Sandler has perpetuated this in later versions of the song.

So Davis became known as Bummy, though he was not a bum, either as a boxer or as a person. His tragic — and violent — death was indicative of the way he lived his life. In 1945, at the age of 25, Davis was fatally shot to death while coming to the defense of a barkeep during a robbery attempt.</r>[16]
