When I was younger, one of my favorite pastimes was playing stickball. Nothing better than going out into the street and swinging at a rubber ball with a beat-up stick pretending that you were Rod Carew.
In the above clip, current New York Yankees Jerry Hairston Jr. and Alex Rodriquez are shown playing stick-ball with some local kids in the Bronx.
All I have to say is the New York Yankees have probably already signed that eight-year old to a contract.
