Grew up in Port Richmond… probably the last generation to ever play these games. We played stickball at Jones school.. it was like our Yankee Stadium. We even made it on the cover of the Daily News when MLB was on strike !!! We played stickball like religion ( we used tennis balls) I have 2 kids now… and the young kids these days have NO idea how to play outside… whatever happened to the GOOD OLD DAYS… they will all be missed !
