TOI reports that the players and their significant others were brought to Israel for a week by the Philos Project, a US-based nonprofit organization that promotes Christian relations with Israel and other Middle Eastern countries.

It was the organization’s first delegation to Israel involving Hispanic athletes, said Jesse Rojo, the Philos Project’s director of Hispanic affairs. The group toured Christian sites in Jerusalem and the Galilee, and ran a baseball clinic for Jewish and non-Jewish youth in Ra’anana.
