When Travis Zier was a young boy he wanted to be a major-league baseball player. As a San Francisco native his hero was Will Clark. Zier’s dream is about to come true only not exactly as he planned.
Zier is going to be playing baseball in Israel. The 22 year-old has been selected to play in the Israel baseball league. He’ll even get his own baseball card printed both in English and Hebrew. Team rosters are filled with college players and minor leaguers as well as Israelis.
The young pitcher had a pretty good baseball career in college. Although this isn’t the big leagues, he’ll be getting a great experience. It’s the pros and he’s happy to be a part of it.
