Welcome

The game of stickball, an early form of baseball, was developed by city children whose playground was the neighborhood streets. From the 1880’st o the 1920’s, New York City’s population swelled with new immigrants. During the same period, baseball was developing into “America’s favorite pastime, “ and learning the game was one of the rituals of becoming an American.


Undaunted by the lack of ball fields in their increasingly crowded urban neighborhoods, African American, Irish, Italian and Jewish children, recent arrivals to Brooklyn, the Bronx and Manhattan, adapted the game to city streets.


Stickball became one of the most popular summer sports for during the Depression. After World War II, many Puerto Rican and other Latinos settled in New York and picked up the game at a time when street games were declining due to increased traffic.
