After being benched by Israeli basketball league Stoudemire’s son invited to play baseball

The Israel Association of Baseball invited former NBA star Amar’e Stoudemire’s son, who was barred from playing Israeli basketball, to switch to baseball.

Peter Kurz made the invitation Monday in an open letter to Stoudemire and his wife, Alexis Stoudemire, saying he was “shocked” by how their son had been treated and that the association he presides over “is open to all.” The Stoudemires’ 12-year-old son, Deuce, has not been allowed to play games with his Hapoel Jerusalem’s youth team because he is not an Israeli citizen.
