The odds were stacked against Team Israel in the World Baseball Classic – not to mention the difficulties faced by the small team of Jewish filmmakers who decided to follow them on their journey of self-discovery from the United States to Israel and South Korea. Jonathan Mayo, a baseball journalist for MLB.com and MLBPipeline.com, joins the Menschwarmers in chatting about how that documentary got made and how Jewish ball players often feel like the odd ones out.
