Heading Home: The Tale of Team Israel Documentary

Discussion to Follow with Director Seth Kramer and Mark Rattner, Chair of Project Baseball for Jewish National Fund.  A new chapter in the enduring love story of Jews and baseball, Heading Home is the stirring underdog chronicle of the unexpected triumph of Israel's national baseball team at the 2017 World Baseball Classic.  Absolutely no one was betting on Team Israel, but that was before they beat Cuba, South Korea, Taiwan and the Netherlands.  Team Israel's scrappy line-up included several Jewish MLB players--including former Red Sox catcher Ryan Lavernway--who found themselves exploring their Jewish identity for the first time while representing Israel on the world stage. 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.  A home run for audiences of all ages.
