Softball, like its better known cousin baseball, has somehow found its way to Dubai and established a strong batch of believers. If you’ve yet to come across this sport, which has a huge following in North America, it involves the same four bases as baseball, but they are less spread out – making for a faster, easier game. You use a bigger ball – bowled underarm – making it easier to hit and less painful should a fly ball catch you. There’s a huge roster of teams around Dubai and all you need to do to sign up is be in possession of a glove, some half-decent crosstrainers and be at least 18 years old.
