Westmount High School to welcome future Olympian Ty Kelly
Team Israel’s performance at the 2017 World Baseball Classic made headlines around the world and one of the stars of the team, Ty Kelly, will be visiting Westmount High School (4350 Ste. Catherine) on Friday, November 8 (11:40 am ) to talk about their improbable journey, one that will continue at the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo.
Kelly will be in town for the local premiere of the award-winning documentary “Heading Home: The Tale of Team Israel,” which will make its Montreal debut on November 9 (7:30 pm) at the Shaare Zion Synagogue on Côte St. Luc Road.
As the team’s second basemen at the World Baseball Classic in 2017, Kelly was integral in Israel’s upset wins over South Korea, Chinese Taipei and Cuba. In September, Kelly helped Israel become one of six countries to qualify for the baseball tournament at the 2020 Summer Olympics.
