Brooklyn Kickball: Day One


The country’s best looking and most notorious kickball league kicks off their summer season today at McCarren Park, despite the cold, wet damper currently suffocating the city. The teams are set, the schedule is up and the Turkey’s Nest just received their ten ton shipment of Styrobeer foam cups to keep everybody properly hydrated.
Two weeks ago, two first-year teams had to battle it out for the last spot in the league in a game that made your little sister’s t-ball league look like the pros. The league’s rowdy band of misfits – the Pirates (Los Piratas Mechanicos…loosely translated and probably poorly spelled) – are more timely and relevant than ever. Look to them for scurvy tales of hostage taking and an abundance of petty arguments over the placement of their pirate flags. We may or may not be sending dispatches from the fields at If you see anything of particular hilarity, feel free to send along tips & photos.
