Actually, the point is to make 'family entertainment' that all groups in Israeli society will feel comfortable attending. There's more to it than what's in the ad. The games all start at 6:13 PM and they are playing games late on Saturday night. And the prices are about the cost of a minor league ticket in the US - maybe less. And for Red Sox fans out there, Dan Duquette (former Sox GM) is the director of player personnel and Theo Epstein is one of the investors.

Right.. this is something good. People have to leave their politics outside and enjoy with their families and friends. And even if everyone a the game is not your friend, this is about baseball.

It speaks well of the OU and the Center for supporting this.
