Israel Baseball League Players Heading For The Major Leagues?

It looks as if joining the Israel Baseball League (which launched last year) may actually help one enter the major leagues internationally.

(Israel National News) Eladio Rodriguez and Jason Rees have signed up with the Yankees, and the Red Sox are trying out Josh Doane and Noah Walker. Four other players have signed up with minor league teams and with teams in Japan and Mexico. Other players are planning to play on university teams this summer.

This is great news to hear, as it may encourage even more Jewish players to join their fellow brethren in the holy land. Hopefully this trend will continue, as it would not only encourage more coverage of the games in Israel (hint, hint ESPN) but also eventually lead towards their acceptance in the major leagues worldwide.
