Just a correction….the Florida Kings are from Orlando, not Miami. San Diego was a fun time…..we met new friends… and new teams just introduced to stickball…they were great sports…learning from experienced ball players, not only the game but the sideline and field “participants” as well. Little Italy was a great place to eat…drink…and be merry.See ya.. “.
