KHAN YOUNIS, Gaza Strip (AP) — The young Palestinian women don baseball caps on top of their Islamic headscarves and field tennis balls with fabric gloves, giving a decidedly local feel to the great American pastime.
They are trying to bring baseball to the Gaza Strip, an effort that is still in its early innings.
The players, who work out on a small soccer field in a southern Gaza town, admit they are still trying to understand the rules of the complicated sport.
With pitches lobbed underhand, the game they play is closer to softball.
“I only know it through TV,” said Valentina Shaer, a 23-year-old English literature student.
