We used to Play in Hackensack…
We used to Play in Hackensack New Jersey Either Full teams of over 6 players both sides or one on one in underground lot stickball which i am almost positive was invented by us over 25 years ago!
Anyway when we played on the street, we only played fast pitch, we had a catcher and one of the fathers would be an ump. The only home run was about 2.5 sewers, the end of the block. We used only Street Hockey balls if anyone familiar with them knows, they have no bounce whatsoever. bases were two telephone poles and the first sewer, a sewer was home plate.
The underground parking version was totally different, one on one but with multiple teams, meaning that 4 people would be four teams, you only got one out, the rules would take forever to write out, but if anyone is interested i am more than willing to share!
We actually kep records, ERA’s, Home runs, etc… we would play every single day, when it rained… underground! when it was nice, outside! When the street was crowded we hit the parking lot!
That is the only thing i can say i truly miss doing from my youth I would love to find a stickball league!
