Born on the streets of Brooklyn, the game of stickball became an urban right of passage for neighborhood kids looking for a way to emulate the legendary baseball players of their time. Instead of Ebbetts Field, Louisville 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 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.
This documentary-style comedy is a tribute to Brooklyn stickball and the heroes 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."
