Nate Fish: From Brooklyn artist to a leader of Israeli baseball

It may seem like a stretch for someone who was once a Williamsburg-Bushwick visual artist to now be living in Israel and to call himself "The king of Jewish Baseball."

But not if you consider that Nate Fish was always an athlete, and was coaching teams even when he was invovled in the arts. In fact, that’s what led him to Israel in the first place.
