Who’s on First?

When Athens became host to the 2004 Olympic games, Greece was thrust into the task of creating a national baseball team that would compete in the Olympics. One problem, Greece had no team, players or stadiums in which to play. Realizing they could not compete on an Olympic level, Greek-American pros were called upon to help create a winning team. The few passionate local Greek athletes were left on the sidelines once winning became a possibility. Finally, what started out as a quirky Olympic novelty, turned into a transatlantic Greek tragedy.
