I played stick ball all summer as a kid. Our field was in the middle of the street with the light pole being the home run fence. It was not far or high but if you hit the ball to high you hit the tree that covered home plate. The best thing about a pimple ball was that if you didn’t hit it exactly right you would “EGG” the ball. This was the challenge. We played halfies into a chair. You got one swing. If you didn’t swing and the halfie hit the chair you were out. Once pimple balls left the scene, tennis ball took over. we lost interest in playing because any idiot could hit a tenis ball. Halfies with tennis balls was just not the same. Unfortunatly, Sony playstation has taken over kids spare time. How long before they have Sony PSP Halfies 2007 ?
