Israel’s baseball team was the underdog of underdogs when they made it to the finals of the 2017 World Baseball Championships in Korea. No one expected Team Israel to make it as far as they did. Heading Home follows the players on their first trip to Israel, and hopefully Israel’s first baseball championship. USA, 2017)
