PL 2015Spring training for the 2015 Premier League baseball season begins Tuesday, February 17, at the Baptist Village in Petah Tikvah, from 19:00-21:00. Four teams will compete for the Premier League championship this year. The Tel Aviv Comrades, last year's champs, led by Dan Rothem, Israel National Team member and Premier League stalwart, will look to repeat. The Modiin Miracles will be coached by Ira Moskowitz, Modiin Regional Director for the Israel Association of Baseball, in his 6th season with the Miracles. The Ra’anana Raiders' pitching staff and line-up will be anchored by national team and Premier League veteran, and Junior National Team coach Orr Gottlieb. And the Jerusalem Lions will have Nate Fish, National Director of the IAB, at their head, in his second year in the league.

"We are excited about the 2015 PL season,” says League commissioner Jordy Alter of Bet Shemesh. “We've made a lot of improvements like adding official scorers so we have reliable stats, and individual awards at the end of the year. And we’re looking forward to adding new players to round out the team rosters and raise the overall level of play."

Spring training will take place each Tuesday and Thursday between February 17 and March 17. Opening night for the league will be Tuesday night March 17, in a game between Tel Aviv and Ra’anana. And the three-game championship series is scheduled to begin June 14 and conclude June 18.
