Cuba's national game is undoubtedly baseball. Wherever you go there are people playing with various standards of sports equipment. This image was shot in Trinidad near Cuba's southern coast. Here the "ball" is a white plastic screw cap from a drinks bottle which a young man attempts to hit with a thin stick. The bottle top was spun and hurled with incredible speed and precision by the pitcher, and being light, it didn't do too much damage when it hit the cars, windows or spectators!
