In Queens, Fastpitch is the main type of stickball played. A strike zone is drawn on the wall and then the batter steps in to face whoever can gun the ball the best.
Games are played with any number of players. Hits are measured by distance, as long as it leaves the infield on the fly and bounces somewhere before being caught. Streetplay happened to catch a game at a playground in Jamaica Queens, with 4 players in the field per team.
