Make It Happen Productions’ Executive Producer Billy Frank stepped onto the field as a member of team USA Maccabi at the Maccabiah games, which were recently held in Israel. This year Billy was honored by being voted Captain of the USA Fastpitch Softball team, which won the Silver Medal at the competition.

“I've loved softball since I was five. Having the chance to do something like this at this point is my life has changed my life,” says Billy. “Being on the field representing the USA in Israel is special for me.”

The Maccabiah games were started in 1932. The 2013 Maccabiah games is the 19th time the event – which has become the world’s third largest international athletic event – has been held.

As team captain, Billy brought lessons learned as a business owner to the games. “Softball is about strategizing for a team. Planning not only what I need to do, but the other members of the team. It's actually how I produce.”

Billy has also taken lessons learned with Maccabi USA and applied them to his work in production. “It's teaching me what's really important and allowing me to step away from the materialistic part of my job. It helps me to stop obsessing about small things and to look at money, clients and pressure in a different light. This journey is a learning lesson, a gift.”

His experience with Maccabiah has also served as a catalyst for personal growth. “Not being brought up in a religious home, Maccabiah is connecting me with my spiritual side and my family heritage,” says Billy. “I'm seeing my story being written.”
