I have a game played in Pittsburgh, PA…A neighborhood called Squiril Hill…We play a game called Levine Stoopball…played in a back court yard. We hit off brick though, behind the brick is a wooden fence, if the tennisball hits it we call it a foul, two fouls and you’re out is our motto, since it’s more rare than a strike. Our game is Baseball based, except we don’t run…I actually started it in Manhattan at PS.84 on 91st street between Columbus and Central Park West, I played it at Lunch break. I took the game to my Relitives in Pittsburgh, it’s been played in my Family ever since. We use Imaginary base runners and determine hits in distance. We also play innings as in baseball. Each person is their own team.
