    Commas or Parentheses Necessary?

    Are the commas or parentheses necessary in these?

    • He worked from Thursday, the 1st, to Friday, the 9th.
    • He worked from Thursday (the 1st) to Friday (the 9th).

    I prefer:
    •He worked from Thursday the 1st to Friday the 9th.

    Do you agree with my preference?

    Thanks
