I also caught up with Celia Bobrowsky, director of Community Affairs for Major League Baseball.Celia held the same title for the Detroit Tigers the last couple of years, and took the opportunity to move to New York to be closer to her roots and family.
not Orthodox, she
spent a Shabbos in my home and came for Pesach meals while with the Tigers.She
was also introduced to some of the popular Lunch and Learn speakers under the Gateways umbrella who came to town through Ohr Somayach Detroit.
Anyway, when Celia
left Detroit I thought the best gift I could give her
would be The Jewish Press Dining Guide, and I circled the Manhattan establishments close to her
office.We lunched at one of the midtown restaurants that advertises weekly in The Jewish Press
and that has become one of her
favorites.Then we trekked a few blocks to her
high-in-the sky baseball-appointed Park Avenue office. Celia
showed me some of the great baseball-related items she's
collected while working in the headquarters of baseball, but the top drawer of her
desk contains one of her
prize possessions - The Jewish Press Dining Guide.
While I enjoyed the games and catching up with Celia
, the time spent with Marty Appel was the highlight of my trip.
