Kurtzer Leads Baseball League Officials Crying 'Foul'

(IsraelNN.com) 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.
Stay tuned here for the latest exclusive updates from Our Man Elli In Israel.

Don't worry, The kids will not cry and the League will continue. Keep the faith , think positive and you will see a 'miracle' happen right before your eyes. Oh, Yeah and when the season starts Elli gets a front row seat so he can see it with his own eyes and gets a free hat with salt so he can eat it:-)

I GUESSED THAT THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN TRYING SO HARD TO WEAKEN THE LEAGUE WITH BAD PRESS AND PUBLICITY WERE BREWING UP A LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN AND I WAS RIGHT. SEEMS LIKE AN EVIL SLEEZY PLOT OUT OF BATMAN.Give the IBL some space to become stronger. Lets see who brings forward the miracle. They are responsible for trying to dig as much dirt and humiliate the league.

Finger-pointing furious in deal gone sour

Now the legacy of that toy is haunting Mega Brands, the Canadian firm that purchased Rose Art.

Mega Brands officials allege in a lawsuit that Jeffrey and Lawrence Rosen -- the brothers who sold them Rose Art, then led that division after the merger -- didn't fix the problems with the dangerous toy in part because they didn't want to jeopardize personal multimillion-dollar payouts tied to profit targets.

Kenny Sweet Jr., a suburban Seattle toddler, died, and at least 27 other children suffered serious intestinal injuries after swallowing tiny magnets that fell out of Magnetix toys.

Hey Wogelegereteree ere or whatever your friggin name is here is another scoop for you!!!!!!
