Hit A Home Run With This Israel Baseball Program

<div class="masa-blog-title">Hit A Home Run With This Israel Baseball Program</div>

In the world of sport, Israel is best known for its elite basketball program, featuring Euroleague champion Maccabi Tel-Aviv, and serving as a popular destination for aspiring professional players to develop their skills. However, did you know that Israel had a baseball program? That’s right. For the past 25 years, the Israel Association of Baseball (IAB) has been developing the sport across the entire country. And as the country grows, so does its interest in baseball.

 

 

 

According to Henry Rosenbloom of The Jerusalem Post, the IAB boasts 850 participants in its ever expanding league, catapulting from 590 players in 2013 and 750 in 2014. There are 5 different leagues set up to accommodate age and skill level of players: minor, juvenile, cadet, junior, and premier. The ages throughout these leagues range from 5 years old to adult, beginning with the minor league and maturing with the adult premier league.

 

 

The growth of interest and activity in baseball has been reflected in Israel’s national baseball success. Israel is ranked 5th among all European nations and 19th in the world; there are no plans of slowing down. Most recently, Israel’s national team claimed victory in the European C-pool championship and looks to do the same for the B-pool and eventually the A-pool, all in the hopes for qualifying for next World Baseball Classic. In their last attempt in 2012, Israel came within one win of qualifying for the tournament. Over the past few years, multiple Major League Baseball players have appeared on the Israel baseball scene. Some names include Brad Ausmus, Shawn Green, and Gabe Kapler. All arrived with the same mindset of growing America’s pastime in the Jewish homeland.

 

 

After these action-packed days, you’ll most likely want to unwind and relax. No need to worry, we’ve got just the thing for you.
