    What I always liked about the kids in our neighborhood was how everyone was included… even if it was an odd number of kids, everybody got playing time. If you got pick last, it motivated you to learn to play better. Most of us became better from watching the best players and practicing on our own whether it was hoops or stickball. I would use Holy Name and play double wall to learn to hit the ball straight and not roof the spaldeens…And we kept score unlike some of the leagues today.

    I remember feeling so proud when I improved to being first picked in hoops. Never happened on my block with our buddy Timmy Horan around !!
    One of the things I liked about our neighborhood whether you played aHoly Name, Windsor Place, 10th avenue, PS 154 or IHM , there was inclusion, criticism (a little rough sometimes but helpful), and encouragement. And it was all done by kids from the time I was about 6 to 20……

    You know what I love about that photo? There are no adults just kids left to their own resources. Boy those were the days.
