Dodgers Hall of Fame pitcher Sandy
Koufax did not pitch in the opening game of the 1965 World Series because
the game fell on Yom Kippur. Don Drysdale, who pitched in Koufax'
place, gave up 7 runs in 2 and 2/3 innings.
"I bet right now you are wishing that I was Jewish, too,"
-- Don Drysdale to manager Walt Alston
