Stickball—a baseball variation specially developed to be played in busy urban areas that lacked parks and fields—flourished in New York City around the turn of the 20th century, thriving among the City's many immigrant communities. The World Series of Stickball honors the history of the game, through exhibitions as well as seasonal stickball games and tournaments, and a Hall of Fame honoring outstanding players from throughout the game's history.
