punchball, stickball, slapball on the street (e17 between Newkirk and Foster) IN THE 50S along w.2 hand touch football+ screwball (chalked strike zone box on the walls of 217- All these were like "Basic Training" for our long ballplaying Daze (CYO sandlot baseball at Erasmus Field and PGL ball et al and our fast pitch softball days at Luna Park, Mark Twain, Vanderveer, Seth Low, Roy Mann and other sites. Most of us played into our 50s- probably a few still playing in Sr Leagues scattered around (LOL). Thanx for bringing the subject up Stan!
