Once, long ago, I had ONE good game playing stickball on North Burgher Ave. Hit a couple of HRs and at one point there was a screaming line drive headed over my head. I thought it was about ten feet high, but I just stuck my hand up anyway, and bang! The ball hit me in the hand and stuck there. Hurt a little, too.

The only good game I ever had. Amazed everybody. Never to be repeated, either.

Seems to me that the balls we used were usually pink. Were Spaldings pink?
