Israel’s Baseball Team Has the Seriously Awesome Mascot ‘Mensch on a Bench’ (Video)
Team Israel might not be destined for greatness on the field, but they’re doing pretty well from a marketing perspective at the World Baseball Classic.
The team, considered an enormous underdog, has been making a little noise with its hilarious mascot, the “Mensch on a Bench.” If you’re wondering what it looks like, it’s exactly what you would think:

Stone cold chillin’.
If you’re wondering where you’ve seen this guy before, he appeared on Shark Tank a while back as a Jewish version of “Elf on a Shelf.”
Looks like they dolled him up in some team colors, but other than that, it’s definitely the same awesome mascot.
Good luck, Israel!
