Brooklyn stickball team plays Harlem in Coney Island

Brooklyn's stickball team gathered in Coney Island for a fun game against Harlem Saturday.



Despite the heat, many say they are glad to play a sport they say originated in the borough.



A few told News 12 they have very fond memories of playing the game during their childhood.



They say it's unfortunate that it's not being played as much now, but they are trying to keep the game alive.
