Jewish people are basically granted Israeli passport (wherever they are born), so yeah, all of them should have valid passports. :p

Most of Israel's team is jewish players from the USA

Well looking at the names that was rather obvious :p I still think they all have a valid Israeli passport as well though.. no idea if it's even allowed to play without a passport of the nation you're representing in baseball :p

wow! what a night it's been...

I didn't really expect a "remuntada" like that when we got 9-5 down against MEX...

I feel sorry for our friend mrv86...I guess it's been a real shock...

 

on the other pitches, we've seen quite a good number of exciting games, despite being so early in the season...

in particular, the game between Cuba and Japan was a high class effort from both sides (maybe not by the pitchers...)...and also earlier today CUB vs AUS was a thrilling one, with the highly favourite Caribbeans that almost went out in round #1, with AUS coming just short in their comeback...

waiting for the US debut later tonight, yesterday it was also an impressive start by the reigning champions, the Dominican Republic...it won't be easy to stop them also in this year's tournament...

Sure it was a shock result, but the credit goes to the Italian team who fought the entire game :clap:

 

Hope you can reach next round,

the US team just avoided a major upset on their 1st game and defeated Colombia 3-2 after 10 innings , USA and DR are big favorites to qualify through group c as expected

rather, Canada looking outstandingly bad against Colombia...:facepalm:

 

by the way, I'm already "hot" for our big game against Venezuela...should we make another upset like Thursday's, we'd be through to the next round and VEN would be unbelievably out of the tournament...but I'm just dreaming...the previous match-ups between ITA and VEN don't speak in our favor at all...

Yes, right after I wrote this Canada gave a free walk point to Colombians. :facepalm:
