Storyline

Born on the streets of Brooklyn, New York the game of Stickball became an Urban right of passage for those neighborhood kids looking for a way to emulate the legendary Baseball players of their time. Instead of Ebbetts Field, Lousville Sluggers, and Pinstripes, On the streets of Brooklyn all you needed was a Broomstick, a rubber ball, and a couple of sewer caps. The local rivalries sometimes became intense when rival teams from different streets competed in unofficial leagues. The prize of winning the local stickball championship did not include trophies or champagne celebrations, but merely the precious pride of neighborhood bragging rights. In the age of the of a technological revolution this documentary style comedy is a tribute to Brooklyn stickball and the hero's who played the game, It tells a story about a simpler time, not so long ago, on the streets of Brooklyn... "When Broomsticks were King". Written by Jason Cusato
