Kurtzer Leads Baseball League Officials Crying 'Foul'

( Israel Baseball League Commissioner Dan Kurtzer, former American Ambassador to Israel, and approximately a dozen members of the new league's advisory board have quit the organization. Among those leaving are men who were involved in producing the league's baseball cards and managing public relations, ticketing and marketing.

They noted the achievement of the League's initiative to bring baseball to Israel but complained about its financial management. One of the managers of the six teams quit towards the end of the first season because of disputes with senior officials.
