The Philadelphia Phillies, Cultural Promotions and Sensitivity

The Phillies are hold their German Heritage Night this Saturday, September 18.

That's the same day as Yom Kippur, the Jewish Day of Atonement (and the most sacred religious holiday).

Now, Yom Kippur does end after sundown that night (it begins on Friday night, September 17), and World War Two (and the Holocaust) ended 65 years ago.

But wouldn't it stand to figure that the Phillies' brass might have been a little more sensitive on the point?
