PONYU162In the latest IBAF (International Baseball Federation) ranking of international federations, ‎the Israel Association of Baseball has moved to 26th place in the world from 28th place in ‎‎2012. This is a major accomplishment for Israeli baseball and is due to the efforts of all ‎the national teams who have placed so high in recent tournaments, including the second ‎place finish for Team Israel in the WBC Qualifiers to the second place finish of the Junior ‎National Team at the PONY tournament last year. ‎

According to Peter Kurz, the IAB President, "This is simply validation of the IAB's ongoing ‎efforts to elevate the level of baseball in Israel. This is currently being reinforced by the ‎change in the Board, the hiring of Nate Fish as our National Director, the increased play ‎in every region, and the successful local tournaments and clinics we are running. Our ‎goal in three years, after the next WBC tournament in 2016, is to reach at least the 18th place in the world rankings, a very fitting place for Israel baseball!" ‎
