Newly acquired New York Mets outfielder Shawn Green says he is excited to be playing in front of New York's large Jewish population.
"I'm excited about it. It's something that has always intrigued me," Green said Wednesday during a conference call. "Playing in L.A., there's obviously a large population there, but New York is head and shoulders the largest in the country."
New York's Jewish population was about 1.75 million in the 2000 census, followed by Miami at roughly 535,000 and Los Angeles at approximately 490,000. The figures are for metropolitan areas.
