Huh... I'm positively surprised looking at the rosters. There are some top-class players here. 

I am unashamed, at getting nothing done.

ehm..  

Ah, the same old story. Netherlands is allowed to use players from their colonies. Italy is allowed to use Italian-Americans. But when Israel does the same, then it's HOW DARE.

As a baseball noob I was surprised at first that I would see Israel as Europe's spot rather than let's say Netherlands. After checking the roster I understood why :)

To be fair even the Dutch team is majority North American (thanks to the various Dutch municipalities in the Caribbeans)

 

Israel's competitiveness in baseball is brand new, they didn't really have any meaningful success before they qualified for the 2017 World Baseball Classic.

Wait? We have Israel? I thought that the team that won the euro qualify was the American Jewish Team...
