"Jews don't do sports, we just sell the equipment" comes to mind.

But of course that's not true. There was Sandy Koufax, who wouldn't pitch on Yom Kippur, and many others. Do we play sports when the pay is good and we don't have to risk our lives unnecessarily? Simcha

Talking about Israel - have you been following this

Official: Israel Might Free Palestinian Prisoners if Captive Soldier is Released

This has been all over the sports section. Dan Duquette is behind it. They want to field a team in the next WBC.

This sure has indeed been all over sports. The NY Times yesterday reported on there being a success of an Israeli 10-12 year old team in a European Baseball competition getting the bronze. Shows how much interest there will be once the "real"
professional teams start playing next June. I think people will really watch this on tv. Personally I have had three people mention this corner of yesterday's Murray Chass article to me.

In regard to Israel Baseball on U.S. television.. giving people who love Israel something to watch and see there which is happy will be a great thing. People love and care about the country, not just American Jews, Christians to a remarkable extent.... Do you know The Baptist Village in Israel is one of the centers of baseball play there!? "Live from the Baptist Village...the undefeated Tel Aviv Camels vs the Jerusalem Messengers.. or maybe the Peta Tikva Disciples vs the Ashkelon Angels"

Dan Duquette in charge of Israel Baseball Player development is huge. Israel has huge huge prospects for baseball.

People forget that Duquette was the brains who broght star players of today such as Manny Ramirez, Jason Varitek to the Red Sox. From Wikipedia which I just referenced:
... Duquette is also noted for several major acquisitions that would ultimately play a part in the team's 2004 championship, including the trade for Pedro Martinez in 1997, the trade for pitcher Derek Lowe and catcher Jason Varitek and the free agent signing of Manny Ramirez in 2000.
