Hi Tony, If I remember correctly east 17th street between Foster and Newkirk was the widest street in the area. I played two-hand touch football on E 17th. I played slow pith and windmill for the 1030 club and the Parkville tavern. I always enjoyed real baseball over softball. I played in the Flatbush little league also for St. Rose of Lima in the CYO league and the 70th precinct PAL league. when I was older I also played for the Bonnie's, the Beverly Boys, and the Cadets. I was at the parade grounds when Dammy Murtaugh ex Pirates manager came to scout John Candelaria. We may have discussed Harvey Kolonko before but it is worth mentioning again he was a softball legend.
