HEADING HOME: The Tale of Team Israel charts the underdog journey of Israel's national baseball team competing for the first time in the World Baseball Classic in 2017. Most of the players have a tenuous relationship with Judaism, let alone having ever set foot in Israel. With their mascot the "Mensch on a Bench", the team laughs, cries and does soul-searching, discovering the pride of representing Israel on a world stage.
Jeremy Bleich, local baseball star who is in the film, will be here for a personal introduction to the movie and to answer questions at the conclusion.
