Photos from Israel's amazing World Baseball Classic ride
Revisit the team's memorable run that's fit for a Hollywood movie.
A league of their own

The Israeli team beat Korea in extra innings, shocked Chinese Taipei, defeated Cuba and played the Netherlands (twice!) before falling to Japan in their final game. In the slides that follow, we look back at their memorable run.
