"Maccabi was a great experience. Meeting new Jewish teens and playing on a team that represents you as a Jewish athlete was awesome! I feel like my experience was even better on a mix team. I was able to meet other Jewish baseball players from Cleveland, San Francisco, San Jose and Tuscon. My teammates were the best! My coach was great and made the experience even better! He really kept us focused, loose and made sure that along with trying to win we were having a great time. I'm definitely planning on going back for another Maccabi! I hope to see the friends I made this year as well as meet new ones. Our team left with the Silver medal this year, and hopefully we can leave next year with a gold! My Maccabi experience was great!"
