Used to play all the time from the late '50s to the early '60s in PS 217 schoolyards (they had three) on Coney Island Avenue and Newkirk. I used to wonder how good a punchball player Duke Snider or Mickey Mantle would be and how far they could punch the ball. It was a sad realization when it sunk in that they probably never played or heard of punchball.
