Israeli Baseball Team Wears Matching Kippot for National Anthem

This week we've been cheering on the Israeli baseball team, who surpassed expectations by going 3-0 in the first round of the World Baseball Classic. In this video, we see the players stand at attention for the Jewish state's national anthem, "Hatikvah," while sporting matching kippot (the traditional skullcaps worn by Jewish men). And in the coming days, we'll be cheering even harder as the Israeli nine take the field for the international tournament's second round. Play ball!
