closing night

A stirring story of sports, patriotism and personal growth, HEADING HOME charts the underdog journey of Israel’s national baseball team competing for the first time in the World Baseball Classic. After years of defeat, Team Israel finally ranked among the world’s best in 2017 making it eligible to play in the prestigious international tournament.

The roster includes Craig Breslow, Ike Davis, Ryan Lavarnway, Josh Zeid and other Jewish Americans from Major League Baseball teams. Most of the Team Israel players have a tenuous relationship to Judaism and have not traveled to Israel before. Their odyssey takes them from Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, where they are greeted as heroes, to Seoul, where the team discovers the pride of representing Israel on the world stage.
