In Torah Tidbits’ historic 1,000th week in franchise history, pitcher Rabbi Jonathan Cohen struck out five, using the timely ‘K’ to hold the lead and record a 6-4 win over Jerry’s Kids.
The Tidbits scored 6 runs in the bottom of the first, and then held off numerous Jerry’s Kids’ rallies, thanks to Cohen’s clutch strikeouts on the mound.
“I wish for myself as a pitcher, the same thing that I wish for Torah Tidbits and our team manager and TT editor and creator Phil Chernofsky,” said Cohen. “Another big K, and success and growth for years to come – and a touch of that Willie Mays magic.”
