Hello stick-ball players of the world. I used to play on 139th Street in Manhattan between Hamilton Place and Amsterdam Avenue. And this was in the late 40’s!!!. Aurelio Casiano (Cuchi), Paul Fondulas, Skippy Scibilo, Vicky Rodriguez, “Ginza” (Sorry I can’t recall the name)and Andre Ognibene and many others played this great game. Later on 141 Street between Riverside Drive and Broadway in the 50s I also continued the game. I shall never forget it. Keep playing and keep enjoying.Regards from London folks.
