In a Hipstivus Miracle, Brooklyn Kickball League Is Back On at McCarren Park


Thanks to the tireless efforts of the Brooklyn Paper, the plaid-covered residents of Williamsburg and Greenpoint will once again have a way to work off their tall boys. The Parks Department had planned to close McCarren Park’s Gilroy Field for reseeding, a move that would have pushed back the start of the Brooklyn Kickball League until July 1. But a sudden reversal will once again allow players to engage in their ironic nostalgia for American pastimes come spring. The dusty baseball field still needs work, however. Expect league members to push up their oversize glasses and make apathetic gestures of protest should the field be closed in September.
