Trivia: Who sat out the first game of the 1965 World Series to observe Yom Kippur?
Correct Answer: Sandy Koufax
So why is this answer correct? : Los Angeles Dodgers ace Sandy Koufax famously missed Game 1 of the 1965 World Series to observe Yom Kippur, setting an example of faith for Jewish youth. Don Drysdale started in his place and took a loss, but Koufax came back to the series in Game 2 and then again in Games 5 and 7, when he shut out the Minnesota Twins and helped lead Los Angeles to a championship.
