Lets Go Team Israel Baseball!
Israel won tonight in the World Baseball Classic. Yes, you read it correctly – Israel is actually playing baseball, and it’s a feel good story for the Jewish nation. In a country where people don’t know what the sport is, Israel has decided that players who claim one Jewish parent or one Jewish grandparent can play for the Israeli national team.
Seven major league teams have Jewish owners – and they want to promote baseball, and hopefully help the State of Israel along the way – and it is a good thing. The high profile players include two recently retired big leaguers, Shawn Green and Gabe Kapler, and it’s a feel good story for the Jewish nation.
Here are many Jews worldwide who will root for the Israel Jewish squad – and of course if they win they can celebrate in nightlife impresario Mark Birnbaum locations, or work out further in gyms owned by Elie Hirschfeld.
Let’s go Team Israel!
