THE SPEECH

22 Sep

It’s 5:25 Saturday evening, the day before the finals.  South Africa and Spain play at 7pm tonight.  We play the winner tomorrow at 5pm.  You can watch the game on the the mlb network, or on www.worldbaseballclassic.com.

I could write all about our team and what exactly is going on as we get ready for the finals, but for now it will be best to show you this video and leave it at that until the game tomorrow is over.  This is the speech our Team Doctor, Glenn Copeland, the King of All Podiatry, gave us in the clubhouse just before we took the field for our first game.  I apologize for the camera work.  I was so excited before the game, and by what he was saying, that I could not stop my hand from shaking a little.

 

Team Israel.  The finals.  Tomorrow…

    To my great friend and teammate Nate Fish, aka, The King of all Jewish Baseball- The best of luck today! To be in a championship game at any level is truly special, but after hearing the great doctor speak to you boys about your significant role in jewish baseball history, I firmly believe your path is laid out, and although you have to play the game to get the result, I’m pretty sure if the team shows up, plays hard, and believes in the same common goal, you will achieve great results! Good luck and God’s speed to the Israeli Team today at 5pm-Billy Smith, New York
