In 2021, Israel’s baseball team competed in the Olympics for the first time. They learn quickly that representing Israel on the world stage is not just fun and games. With no media allowed in Tokyo’s Olympic Village, the players record their own experiences. Mostly newly minted Israelis, they log unexpected battles against anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism. Victory for Israel comes on the playing field, even if not on the podium.
