Baseball been very very good to me.

Oh, somewhere in this holy land the sun is shining bright ; The Klezmer band is playing somewhere, and somewhere Matzoh Balls are light ; And somewhere men are laughing, and somewhere children shout ; But there is no joy in Tel Aviv – mighty Irving Schwartz has struck out.

But now, it looks like there’s ‘hope for change’ in that arena.

Israel will be able to field some Major League baseball stars after having received its first-ever invitation to the World Baseball Classic to take place in 2013.

The 28 teams to play in the international competition are allowed to line up only citizens of their countries. For Israel, that includes Americans whose mother and/or father are Israeli.

Under those rules, players such as the Texas Rangers’ Ian Kinsler and the Boston Red Sox’s Kevin Youkilis are eligible to play for the Israel team. The same goes for powerhouse batter Ryan Braun of the Milwaukee Brewers, Scott Feldman of the Rangers and Jason Marquis of the Washington Nationals.

    Sweet.

    I will be rooting for Japan though. They will win. The sport’s more popular there than in the US, especially on the amateur level. The big final games of the high school tournaments get more viewers than Japan’s own major league.
