Baseball in Iraq

No, it's not what you think. Not a story about American soldiers teaching Iraqi kids to play baseball. That's happened, but that's not this story.

It's a story about Ismael Khalil Ismael, who took up baseball during Saddam's reign, kept it underground for fear of getting on Saddam's bad side, and now is trying to run a league. Of course, nothing is simple.
