Aaron Pribble: Pitching in the Promised Land
It was the first (and last) season of professional baseball in Israel. Aaron Pribble, twenty-seven, had been out of Minor League Baseball for three years when he tried out for the newly formed Israel Baseball League (IBL). In many ways the league resembled the ultimate baseball fantasy camp with its unforgettable case of characters: the DJ/street artist third baseman from the Bronx, the wildman catcher from Australia, even seventy-one-year-old Sandy Koufax. Join the author as he recounts his coming of age spiritually and athletically over one short season in the throes of romance, Middle Eastern politics, and the dreams of American's pastime far, far afield from home.  

Aaron Pribble played collegiate baseball at the University of Hawaii then professionally in the Western and Central Baseball Leagues, in France, and in the Israel Baseball League. He has a Masters Degree in Political Science and teaches at Tamalpais High School, in Mill Valley, California. Aaron lives in San Francisco.
