Baseball Picture of the Day: Fallujah Field

Approx. 100 days to Pitchers and Catchers!

“Pfc. Preston Snook leans back and waits for his pitch during a pick-up baeball game on Camp Fallujah’s sandlot baseball field. Marines from Regimental Combat Team 5 gather weekly to play ball, a way to releive the stress of being deployed and relive their dreams of one day being a Major League Baseball player.

Thanks, Gb, great picture. If Preston Snook makes contact, that ball is a-flyin' off his bat.

Fallujah’s sandlot baseball field


I like that. Once again, bravo Gamingboy for this addition to the Primer menu.

Now, where's the Primer Dugout been?

Here's the full article. It's three years old, which makes a bit more sense (Camp Fallujah is no longer a US military installation, from what I've heard).
