Marquis plans to make start on Kol Nidre

- Associated Press - Sunday, September 12, 2010

WASHINGTON (AP) - Nationals pitcher Jason Marquis plans to make his scheduled start Friday night at Philadelphia, even though he is Jewish and it will be Kol Nidre, the start of Yom Kipper.

Marquis has previously pitched on Yom Kippur, the Jewish Day of Atonement, while with Atlanta and the Chicago Cubs.

"Your team expects you to do your job and not let your teammates down, and that's the approach I take," Marquis said Sunday.
