Day 8

You can see a few Jewish Dodgers fans have paid their respects at this Catholic Cemetery.


  1. Karen Too says:

    Hi Matt,

    Yes, the stones. I do that, too, even though I am not Jewish. I also leave oranges, and have a toast at the site, pouring a share onto the grave.

    Baseball for many is a religion unto itself. ;-)

  2. Joisy Jeff says:

    Meet the Mets….Meet the Mets. Yea, like Karen Too said..i’m catholic…but I leave stones or twiggs too.

    • Dorinda from Mentor, Oh. says:

      There are 2 Hells Angels buried in the same cemetery where my parents are and they have coins all over the tops of their stones. Guess it doesn’t matter your culture it’s still a sign of respect for the departed.
