HEADING HOME: THE TALE OF TEAM ISRAEL
Seth Kramer, Jeremy Newberger, Daniel A. Miller | Documentary | 91 min | USA | 2017 | English

A stirring story of sports, patriotism and personal growth, HEADING HOME charts the underdog journey of Israels national baseball team competing for the first time in the World Baseball Classic. After years of defeat, Team Israel finally ranks among the worlds best in 2017, eligible to play in the prestigious international tournament. Their line-up included several Jewish American Major League players
Ike Davis, Josh Zeid and ex-Braves catcher Ryan Lavarnway most with a tenuous relationship to Judaism, and never having set foot in Israel. Their odyssey takes them from Tel Aviv and Jerusalem where they are greeted as heroes, to Seoul where they must debunk their has-been, wannabe reputations. As their Mensch on a Bench mascot tags along, the team does much soul-searching, discovering the pride of representing Israel on the world stage.

Featuring a post-screening presentation on Jews in baseball with nationally known Sportscaster David Cohen.

Generously sponsored by The Atlantic Settlement Group, Richard Oppenheim
