Israel Gets Sponsor for World Baseball Classic

It appears that Triangle Finanacial Services, which owns the Maccabi Haifa basketball team will also sponsor the Israel baseball team as they compete in the qualifying round for the World Baseball Classic.  They also hope to build sometime in the near future the first minor league style ballpark in Israel.
