The Most Badass Jewish Sports Figures of All Time

Ryan Braun

Team(s): Milwaukee Brewers
Sport: Baseball
Years Played: 2007-Present

Accolades: NL MVP (2011), 5x All-Star, 5x Silver Slugger, NL Rookie of the Year (2007), 3x NL Slugging Percentage Leader, NL Batting Champion (2009), NL Home Run King (2012), 2x Member of the 30/30 Club

Badass Justification: The "Hebrew Hammer," as he's been donned, can flat out hit. A five-time Silver Slugger, and last year's Home Run King, Braun has made more than a splash since landing on the scene in 2007. He claimed NL Rookie of the Year honors first, and already has an MVP award to his name as well. The Hammer clearly has his eyes on a ring and will be in Milwaukee through 2020. We wonder how the matzoh ball soup and knishes are in Wisco anyway. Sure hope mom sends plenty of care packages from Cali.
