rishoncourseOn Wednesday and Thursday the 22nd and 23rd of January, Ra’ananim school in Rishon Lezion hosted Nate Fish, National Director of the Israel Association of Baseball, Sam Friedman, IAB staffer, and Ilan Klein, a member of the Israel national team. About 400 children were introduced to the game and had the opportunity to experience first-hand, what it’s like to play baseball. Every class at the school spent time with the coaches to learn skills such as running the bases, fielding and throwing baseballs, and learning how to hit. Ilan spoke to the students about what it’s like to travel the world representing Israel as well as his impending draft into the IDF as a "sporta'i". Each student received a baseball card at the conclusion of the class.

The baseball clinic is part of an IAB outreach program to teach school around Israel children about the sport. Currently, players from Rishon Letzion play a short 15-minutes away on the Rehovot team, which is now in its 16th season.
