Minton's Playhouse was a renowned uptown jazz club that played a key role in helping Dizzy Gillespie, Charlie Parker and others create the musical form known as bee-bop. It was also home to one of the best stickball teams ever to grace the street's of NYC.

Streetplay looks back to the Minton's Playhouse team and presents the stories of some of the great players who have been inducted into the Stickball Hall of Fame.

Several other members of Minton's Playhouse have also been inducted into the Stickball Hall of Fame. They include:
  • Eddie Brennan - Came to Mintons in the early 50's became one of best stickball third basemen in the city
  • Al Wilson - Probably the best player on the team. A good fielder and great hitter, Al joined the team in the late 50s
