Northern Saudi Arabia, February, 1991: Soldiers from 4th Squadron, 2nd Armored Cavalry Regiment play a game of "Saudi ball" to ease stress and occupy some of their free time in the Saudi Arabian desert. The game they invented is like baseball, except that everyone has to bat one-handed with the hand they normally don't use; and pitchers and fielders must also throw with their "other" hand.
