The White Sox And Yom Kippur

The White Sox announced earlier Tuesday that their Sept. 25 game against the Indians would be played at 1:10 p.m. instead of 7:10 p.m. because fans had "communicated concerns" about the evening start on Yom Kippur. But there might also be another reason.

Kevin Youkilis is Jewish. The White Sox haven't had a Jewish player since 2004 (Scott Schoeneweis), and haven't had a Jewish player of the stature of Youkilis since... well, maybe ever. This isn't to criticize the White Sox, only to say that there were factors beyond fan convenience involved.
