The Under-16 Israel National Team is going to Prague, Czech Republic to compete in the 2016 PONY baseball tournament, one of Europe's premier competitions, April 13-17. Help us get to Prague to compete for the championship this year! The U16 team is made up of the most talented and devoted players and coaches in Israel from that age group. The team has been practicing together since October, 2015, and will continue until the tournament, including an intensive mini-camp prior to leaving. Players and coaches travel from all over Israel to practices. They pay for their own travel, and for the trip to Europe. Needless to say, it is a big commitment. In return, they get the chance to wear the Team Israel uniform and represent their county in international competition and play the great game of baseball at the highest level. The cost of the trip for the team is roughly $20,000. We will deduct what we raise here from the total to lighten the financial burden on the players and their families. This is a chance for you to support this group of young players and their coaches. The money you give will have a real and positive impact. It will allow certain players to participate who could otherwise not afford the trip, and it will motivate us even more knowing you're out there rooting for us. We'll give it everything we've got and make you a proud supporter of Israel Baseball. On behalf of all the baseball players and coaches in Israel, THANK YOU.
