HEADING HOME: THE TALE OF TEAM ISRAEL

February 8, 2019 @ 12:00 am - 11:59 pm

A stirring story of sports, patriotism, and personal growth, HEADING HOME: THE TALE OF TEAM ISRAEL charts the underdog journey of Israel’s national baseball team as it competes for the first time in the World Baseball Classic. Its lineup includes several Jewish-American Major Leaguers, most with a tenuous relationship to Judaism, barely any ever having ever set foot in Israel. Their odyssey takes them from the Holy Land where they are greeted as heroes to Seoul where they must debunk their reputations as has-beens and wannabes. With their Mensch on a Bench mascot by their side, the team laughs, cries, and does much soul-searching, discovering the pride of representing Israel on the world stage.
HEADING HOME broke box office records when it world premiered this December in Boston, home of the World Champion Red Sox. The film opens in Florida the week before Spring Training. Can Boston’s record be beat?

Special Guests: Team Israel Outfielder Cody Decker and the filmmakers. Tickets available soon.
