The 18th and likely final Kosher Day sponsored by the Atlanta Kosher Commission at an Atlanta Braves game did not have a happy ending. At least, not for Braves fans.
But it was a great afternoon for the Giants.
The weather was good, as was the turnout for baseball and the kosher grilling of Keith’s Corner BBQ on the Home Run Porch of Section 154 at SunTrust Park on Sunday afternoon, May 6. But the San Francisco Giants were inhospitable guests, surviving a ninth-inning Braves rally to win, 4-3, and complete a three-game sweep of Atlanta. Currently the G-men are two games above .500 in the National League West.
The Braves still led the National League East through games played Monday, May 7. As for Kosher Day, unless another organization takes it over from the AKC, which has offered to help, or a benefactor emerges to take some of the financial burden off the nonprofit agency, 2019 will be a season of treif at SunTrust Park.
Fortunately for Giants fans back home, Jewish Heritage Night is still an annual event at AT&T Park.
