Mother’s Day Event Grand Slam
Q&A with Filmmaker Seth Kramer
A new chapter in the enduring love story of Jews and Baseball, Heading Home is the stirring underdog chronicle of the unexpected triumph of Israel’s national baseball team at the 2017 World Baseball Classic. Absolutely no one was betting on Team Israel, but that was before they battled Cuba, South Korea, Taiwan and the Netherlands. Team Israel’s scrappy line up included several Jewish MLB players–including former Red Sox catcher Ryan Lavarnway–who found themselves exploring their Jewish identity for the first time while representing Israel on the world stage.
A home run for audiences of all ages.
