The Washington Nationals suspended the credentials of a minister who counseled players that Jews were going to hell. Rabbi Shmuel Herzfeld met Tuesday with Nationals President Tony Tavares after the Washington Post reported that outfielder Ryan Church was told by a minister that his Jewish former girlfriend was going to hell. Jon Moeller, a representative from Baseball Chapel, has been temporarily denied access to team facilities, and the team is asking Moeller and Baseball Chapel to disassociate themselves from the comments.
