Short sleeve retro tee with a Stickball graphic and text on front. Stickball was mostly played in cities mainly in the Northeastern United States and was widely popular from the 1920’s through the 1980’s -- especially Philly, Jersey, Boston and New York. The equipment used was a bat, made from a broom handle usually gripped with tape and depending upon where you were playing, the ball could be a Spaldeen (Spalding), a Pinky Ball or a Pimple Ball (whole or halfsies). Usually formed as a pick-up game, Stickball was played in the streets, playgrounds or parking lots. The rules came from baseball but modified for the streets like having manhole covers, fire plugs or tele-poles for bases and cars & building for fouls. Where there’s a will -- there’s a way to play!
