Former US Ambassador to Israel Dan Kurtzer has stepped down as commissioner of Israel's fledgling professional baseball league, topping a flurry of resignations amid questions over the league's finances, the league's public relations firm announced Sunday. The resignations set off rumors that the league was folding after just one year in the field, but organizers denied that. In a statement released Thursday, Kurtzer announced he was stepping down along with league advisory board members Martin Abramowitz, Marty Appel, Jeff Goldklang, Marvin Goldklang (a minority owner of the New York Yankees), Stuart Hershon, Randy Levine, Gary Rosen, Bob Ruxin and Andrew Zimbalist. The members commended Baras for having the vision to bring pro baseball to Israel, but expressed dismay with the way the league's finances and business operations were handled.
