The Stickball Classic brings together New Yorkers in celebration of a great local activity

Here's a recipe bound to bring out an interesting crew. Put together the Daily News, Curtis Sliwa and the Guardian Angels, the Brooklyn Dodger Sym-phony Band, a bunch of great stickball teams from around the City, and a few brave souls who haven't played in awhile, but are interested in dusting off their broomsticks. Oh yeah, throw in the fact that the event raises money for a the Police Athletic League, a great youth organization.

Now that's a tournament that brings out real New York character, and some real New York characters too! At each stop of the tour, Streetplay has talked with the participants to try and capture a bit of the flavor in this tradition.
