Jewish Man Wins Change to Church-Only Softball Policy

From Caroline County comes this piece of news:

Lieberman, 43, said he hasn’t played softball in years, but thought it would be fun to “get a little physical activity and hang out with the neighbors.”

Lieberman, of Ruther Glen, said he was told that it was a church league and he must attend a church in the county to play.

When he replied that he is Jewish and there are no synagogues in Caroline County, he was told he could not play. He said he hung up in disbelief.

“It was kind of surreal to me. I wasn’t sure if I heard what I thought I heard,” he told The Associated Press on Thursday.

Surreal indeed.
