when we were kids we used to play a game we called “dickball”- very simple rules; the bat was a little sawed off club called ‘the dick’ ( it was even labelled as such in black permanent marker on the side of it). play consisted of ‘juicing’ the end of the dick in the remains of a grapefruit, tossing it up in the air, admonishing the contestant, ‘don’t get the sh**** end of the dick”.. then the person who won the ‘dick toss’ was first to bat; ( the ‘ball’ was a crunched up empty beer or soda can). then the pitch. there really wasn’t any more to it than that. once in a while, play was momentarily interupted to let a car go by, then play was resumed. My favorite memory was whenever someone would hit a groundball and Jeff Haile would yell “nutroll!”… it sounds silly (and it was), but that’s just how it was.
