Episode 57: Jewish Sports Legends – The Saga of Israel’s Baseball Team

By JewishBoston.com

Two years ago, ESPN called Israel’s entry into the World Baseball Classic, the World Cup of hardball, a team of “has beens, wanna-bes, and never-will-bes.” This rag-tag group of Jewish current and former Major League Baseball players donned the blue-and-white Israel uniforms for the first time in the country’s history on an international stage. “Heading Home,” a documentary about the team and its bonding trip to Israel, opens right here in Greater Boston on Friday, Dec. 14, at West Newton Cinema. Get ready for the big debut by listening to Dan and Miriam talk hardball, Israel and Mensches on Benches with the two Jeremys—Jeremy Bleich, a relief pitcher on Team Israel, and Jeremy Newberger, co-producer and co-director of the film. Edited by Jesse Ulrich, with music by Ryan J. Sullivan. Learn more: http://www.ironboundfilms.com/headinghome
