HOLY LAND HARDBALL


USA, 2008, video, documentary, 87 minutes
Directors: Brett Rapkin and Erik Kesten

Get ready for the world series with the story of an unlikely group of players and executives who attempted to create Israel’s first professional baseball league in the summer of 2007. Boston bagel-maker Larry Baras’ idea for Middle East baseball was met with incredulity, dismissal and even hostility, but he attempted it anyway. Among the ballplayers swept up in this unlikely quest: were a 41-year-old father of three with a Peter Pan complex; a 34-year-old father-to-be whose own father, now deceased, fought for Israel's independence in 1948; and a 22-year-old African-American who was told by a preacher at a young age he would one day "play in front of God's people."
