Seeing the Israeli flag waving over the baseball diamond at the Tokyo Olympics is a dream for every Jewish baseball fan. The Israel Association of Baseball has launched a crowdfunding campaign to help us send Team Israel to three tournaments we have to win in order to be able to qualify for the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, Japan. With your help, we can raise the finds that will enable us to compete to reach the Olympic Games.
These tournaments are being played around Europe at different stages of 2019. We have to win these tournaments to earn a coveted spot at the Olympic Games.
We need to raise the funds that will help 25 players and coaching staff get to the tournaments. Our expenses include: Air travel and local transportation, accommodation, food, uniforms and equipment, and pre-tournament practice and training expenses including field rentals.
Team Israel includes 10 professional American Jewish players who have made Aliyah to be part of Team Israel for the Olympics.
The incredible success of Team Israel in the 2017 World Baseball Classic is still clear in our memories. Seeing an Israeli team on the global stage of the Olympic Games will be a dream for every Jewish baseball fan. Our local players were inspired and enriched by seeing Team Israel on a global stage, and it motivated them to become even better players themselves.
Seeing an Israeli team at the Olympic Games will be as emotional and exciting an event as we have ever seen in Israel baseball. But we cannot do this without your help. By contributing to our crowdfunding campaign with a tax-free donation, you can share in this fantastic journey and in the future success of Team Israel Baseball at the 2020 Olympic Games.
