I remember very clearly the day when Sandy Koufax sat out a World Series game. This Yom Kippur has brought about many a discussion about the same topic, only this time not for a player, but for Jewish fans (i.e. September 18 article in Washington Post) And though the Post failed to call me to ask for my two shekels (imagine that!), the Washington Jewish Week asked for my thoughts for an article that will hopefully hit the mailboxes today.
Meanwhile, Tommy McFly 94.7 called me again last week for another "Blessing of the Baseballs, and we met just outside Nats Park before the Nats/Mets game.
