    Having spent childhood in the 40s and 50s in a small Western NY village, everything in the video was exactly as things were – with a single exception. ?I never hit a ball off a tee and never played in a little league. ?There was none. ?We all just gathered at the “Rotary Field”, chose up teams and played. ?There were no adults to bother us and we learned how to play sports mostly by watching and modeling the older guys on the high school teams.
