Havana Nagila!

Israel’s baseball team, alternately known as The Jew Crew, continued its Cinderella journey through the World Baseball Classic with a 4-1 win over Cuba yesterday to go 4-0 thanks in no small measure to Josh Zeid – former Phillies prospect who pitched his way out of a bases loaded jam in the 9th inning.

Not that anyone is diminishing the role of the team’s mascot, The Mensch on the Bench.

    (JTA) โ€” Israelโ€™s surprising squad in the World Baseball Classic lost its first game in the tournament, dropping a rematch with the Netherlands, 12-2.

    Israel is now 1-1 in the second round of the 16-team quadrennial tournament and 4-1 overall. Israel likely must defeat powerhouse Japan on Wednesday to advance to the semifinals.
