A roster of 30 NY locals including Asher Roth and Jesse Boykins, who also sang the National Anthem were all ready to throw down in this years game. They all received a customized 1 of 30 Futura X Nike Sportswear jersey to play in, as well as a drip-painted stickball bat by Futura. In preparation for the big game, a bus full of the players drove up to Stickball Blvd in the Bronx on Saturday for a Spring Training with The Emperor’s Stickball League. The players were given a brief history on the sport and its origins followed by a bat gripping workshop, batting practice and scrimmage.

An addendum to your June 24 article about an exhibition on the history of stickball at the Museum of the City of New York: My father, Charles Minoff, inventor of shatterproof glass and a manufacturer of small household items in Brooklyn, was the first to make and distribute a commercial stickball bat. The year was 1951.

Great. I was looking for the one with the Barber Stripe friction tape handle, but this was fine.

There are two ends to a stickball bat, one usually being a little bit heavier than the other. There is often a nob at one end. Depending on the preference of the batter, either side can be used. It is not like a baseball bat, where the grip is much narrower than the bat itself. An essential part to any stickball bat is tape: tape is wrapped around the bat in ample supply, to allow for grip. The tape is usually colored: variations of blue and white, and red and blue, or black with anything are popular, although I have probably seen every color variation possible (execpt, yellow and orange, which I am not sure if I can ever remember seeing). It can be said that no two stickball bats are the same, much like snowflakes.
