Oy vey! It's time to "Play Ball" in Israel
Coming to six cities in Israel - Tel Aviv, Bet Shemish, Modi'in, Ra'anana, Netanya and Petach Tikva, is the new Israel Baseball League, which is set to take the field come June 24.
The fledgling league has more than a healthy dose of involvement from former MLB players and executives, and is being run by former Red Sox GM Dan Duquette.
Our longest USRT excursion ever was to Honolulu for the Pro Bowl, and that was 4680 miles. Buffalo to Tel Aviv is 5792 miles. USRT to Israel??? Hmmm..... nah!!!!
