Wayne Begasse ©Stars and StripesNorthern Saudi Arabia, February, 1991: Soldiers from 4th Squadron, 2nd Armored Cavalry Regiment play a game of "Saudi ball" in the Saudi Arabian desert during Operation Desert Storm. The game they invented was like baseball, except that everyone had to bat one-handed with the hand they normally didn't use; pitchers and fielders also had to throw with their "other" hand.
