Meet Larry Baras, a middle-aged Jewish bakery owner from Boston. With no prior sports management experience, he sets out to create Israel's first professional baseball league. With extraordinary access, Holy Land Hardball follows the unlikely formation of the Israel Baseball League, the first ever professional baseball circuit in the Middle East. Their task is to bring to Israel a sport they have managed to live without for 5,767 years. The ultimate question is, "If we build it, will they come?"
