After years of defeat, Team Israel proves they are underdogs no longer, finally ranking among the world’s best teams in 2017 and eligible to play in the prestigious international tournament. With a lineup that features Jewish American Major League ballplayers like ex-New York Mets first baseman, Ike Davis, ex-Houston Astro, Josh Zeid, and ex-Braves catcher, Ryan Lavarnway, no one expected Team Israel to make it as far as they did.
Proving that they are much more than the has-beens their opponents expected, they take Israel and the world by storm. With their famous Mensch on a Bench mascot at their side, the teammates bond and together discover what it means to represent their homeland on the world stage.
