The New York Emperors Stickball League will be going back to Coney Island on July 1st, 2012, which is being considered the July 4th weekend. Here are the details:
Name: Stickball @ Coney Island
Location: W. 15 St. between Bowery St. and the Boardwalk, Brooklyn
Participants: All are welcome with signed waiver
Game Type: Good old fashion pickup games!
Requirements: Team shirt and Stick!
The NYESL paid a visit to Coney Island two years ago and brought Stickball to Brooklyn as a way to embrace the local community. Through Stickball the youth and adult alike will perform physical exercise and build relationships that will last for many years. Through Stickball fathers and sons develop a more meaningful relationship because Stickball provides the mechanism by which the relationship can flourish. So, by bringing Stickball to Coney Island on Sunday we hope to showcase our game, meet a wonderfully diverse crowd and enjoy the legendary Coney Island!
Stickball. Not just a game…A Tradition!!!
Last year the NYESL paid it’s first visit to Coney Island on Sunday September 11th,2010 and paid a tribute
to our former President Steve Mercado. May he rest in peace.
