Palestinian women try to bring baseball to Gaza

Palestinian women train for an all women’s baseball game, on a soccer field in Khan Younis, southern Gaza Strip. The female players wear hijabs, not helmets, toss around tennis balls, not baseballs and their leather gloves have been replaced by black imitations knitted from fabric.
