Winter Ball
During the winter, a weekly choose-up stickball game is held from 9:30 - 12:30 at 189th & Bathgate in the Bronx. This is down the block from Straus Auto Parts and across the street from Roosevelt HS and Mt. Carmel Grammar School. The games are held in weather above freezing as long as its not raining or snowing.

San Diego

San Diego's stickball enthusiasts usually get together about once a month, for "choose-up" competetions.

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.
