Thanks To Team Israel, #JewCrew Is Trending On Twitter

The day before Team Israel kicked off the 2017 World Baseball Classic with an upset win over South Korea, manager Jerry Weinstein, pitcher Jason Marquis and third baseman Cody Decker held a press conference to discuss the team’s preparation for the tournament.

Decker brought along the team’s 5-foot tall mascot, Mensch on a Bench. He also rocked a new t-shirt, one that is now making the rounds on social media.

Ladies and gentlemen, meet the #JewCrew.

If you’re interested in hoping on the bandwagon, America’s Finest Apparel is selling the shirts. Due to popularity, there’s a 1-2 week backorder.
