Series Finale: Team Israel vs. The World
Play • 14 min

In the series finale, join Chana Weinberg to learn about Team Israel’s wild and suspenseful journey throughout the Tokyo Olympic games as they battled, Korea, The United States, Japan, Mexico, and the Dominican Republic for Gold.  

This limited-run podcast will tell the story of how a small country the size of New Jersey which features no professional baseball league managed to produce a world-class team that beat a string of baseball Goliaths to secure a trip to Tokyo.

With unprecedented insider access to players, coaches, and managers, the show will tell the stories of the ragtag team of athletes -- some former Major Leaguers, some underdogs -- who managed to pull off one of the greatest upsets in modern sports history, touching on larger themes like faith, friendship, and nationhood.

This is a production of SoulShop in partnership with the Israel Association of Baseball.
