Halfball

From Boston to Philly

If you lived in and around a major city in the 1950s and 1960s you probably played halfball all day long. In fact you probably thought you invented halfball.

Halfball began when some kids were playing a stickball game and the white pimple ball split in half. Having no money for a new ball, the boys started throwing the ball at each other. All of a sudden one of the halfballs began to float toward the batter like a flying saucer. Legend has it that the batter doubled off a triple decker (Yo, we thought this was invented in Philly, not Boston!)

Halfball was born.
