THE GAMES WE PLAYED

, , ,

The corner of Fuller Place and Windsor Place.  Legendary Whiffle Ball games were once played here.

LEGENDARY!

Frankie Cullen was by far the best whiffle ball player in the neighborhood. 

He was a force at the plate.  George Brett-like.

Frankie was a left-hander who could hit for power and also slap a double or triple in the gap.

Those were the days my friend…
