Well, they are the Under 14 Israel National Baseball team, and they came in 7th place out of 16.
But that is quite an accomplishment coming from a country with almost no baseball culture, or knowledge of the sport. Last year the young Israel National Team won the European championship in the C division, so this year’s team competed in the 2015 European B Division.
Here are some of the Israeli players with the opposing Ukrainian team.
Quite an accomplishment for these boys, to play in an European championship, against Ukraine, in Prague – and on Yom Hashoah.
Kol hakavod to the team and their families.
The Israeli Under 14 National Baseball team once again wins for representing Israel so well!
