In this Sunday, March 19, 2017 photo, 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 The female players wear hijabs, not helmets, toss around tennis balls, not baseballs and their leather gloves have been replaced by black imitations knitted from fabric. The group of young women are trying to bring baseball to Gaza -- giving the traditional American pastime a distinctly local feel. (AP Photo/Khalil Hamra)
