Best Place To Play Kickball With Drunken Baseball Players (2008)

NORTH MEADOW BALL FIELD

Officially, you sign up to use Central Park's NORTH MEADOW BALL FIELD, but try stopping by during playoffs, when early elimination can mean an open diamond, and, if you're especially lucky, a team celebrating with beers some guy sells out of a filthy cooler. Sports are mostly boring to watch and frightening to play, but the big red ball you'll have to bring is easy to boot far, catch, and run away from if it's going fast enough to give you a bruise or something. Kickball's even better than Little League because someone's dad isn't there screaming at you. Me, I love my dad. He hates sports.
