San Diego's stickball enthusiasts usually get together about once a month, for
The "fields" are in front of Mark Twain Jr. High, which is hidden from view
near the southwest corner of Mission Bay High School. There will be at BBQ at
the same time (bring your own food for yourself or to share).
- Interstate 5 northbound, exit at Grand/Garnet.
- Turn left at first traffic signal light (it's a 2 lane left turn pocket).
- Go about 1/2 mile down the road (Grand Avenue). Mission Bay High School
will be on your left.
- Turn left into the street on the west side of the School. This is Lee
Street. If you reach the traffic signal light, you have gone too far.
- Follow the street until it ends. We play where the street ends, on the
street in front of the buildings of Mark Twain Jr. High. If the chainlink
gate across the street at the Junior High is closed, park and walk on in.
There's a pedestrian opening at the left side of the gate.
