Used to play at the Sacred Heart parking lot; unfortunately never hit well there.
We used to also play in a small area on the side of Sacred Heart School, between Castleton and Cary Aves. The wall of the school (I think it was the cafeteria wall) was the strike zone and a home run was over a four foot chain link fence into someone's backyard. If you hit it into some backyards of homes along Cary Ave, it was a double.
There was a wrought iron stairway leading to an auditorium near the strike zone. It was a good place for spectators to sit and watch. It was also a good nighttime hangout.
