Jamie McCourt hasn’t been to Israel since July 2014, but she pitched a Zionist perfect strike in 2009 when she threw out the first ball of the Maccabiah Games baseball tournament as CEO of the Dodgers when the beloved Los Angeles baseball team served as a sponsor of the games.

She hasn’t been actively involved with the Maccabiah since her separation from her husband of 40 years, Frank McCourt (owner and chairman of the Los Angeles Dodgers and Dodger Stadium from 2004 to 2012) in one of the most highly publicized, expensive divorces in American history. A dispute as to whether the Dodgers assets were community property or wholly owned by her husband ended with Frank firing her from her dream job.
