The first 1500 fans to enter the ballpark each received a "L'Chaim Cup":
The flag of Israel flew beneath the American flag, and Hatikvah was played:
"The Star Spangled Banner" was sung by a synagogue choir.
And the scoreboard, the cards introducing the players were altered to fit the night's theme:
I wanted a photo of the pitcher's introduction card -- he was #18. By the time I got my camera out, his card was gone, never to return -- they use the DH in Atlantic League baseball, "18" is chai, and that means life -- but there was no life in the pitcher, he couldn't seem to find the strike zone.
We stayed until the bitter end...final score 5-2.
Our next Ducks game will be a playoff game, at the end of September.
