                                                      times we used chalk to draw the base on
                                                      the street. We often struggled to find a
                                                      tennis or spaldeen ball to play with. We

                                                      our own umpiring, and we enforced the
memories of the stickball games we played             rules. We decided when the game began,
in Brooklyn as kids.                                  and when it ended. We learned that if a
