Description

The English version of a (Syrian?) website includes the following text under the heading "Top Degenegi:"  

"Top Degenegi was similar to the American game of baseball.  To play, one needed a thick bat and a ball, which was usually made using bits of rag tied together with colorful string.  Two teams are formed, and they stand at a distance from one another.  Like in baseball, one team pitches and the other bats.  The batter has to hit the ball back in the direction of the pitching team, whose members must then try to catch the ball before it hits the ground."
