Your post, Tony, and a couple of others have triggered some memories about ballfields in parks. My dad, who managed a "Brooklyn Eagle" store, used to coach/train/manage a baseball team that worked out in Marine Park, I guess to compensate not having a son but four daughters. He mentioned that one of his players was Joe Torre (???). I remember some of these kids, not names but by sight, having gone to see one or two games/practices. One time he took me and one of my sisters to Riis Park along with a bunch of these guys.
