Snider was part of the charmed "Boys of Summer" with the Dodgers in the late 1940s and 1950s. He helped lead Brooklyn to its only World Series championship in 1955. (AP Photo/File)

APBA Baseball

By The Numbers: APBA Baseball

Bobby Lemke and Leo Smith were two of my best friends growing up in Hoboken in the 1960’s. And they still are. If the weather was bad and we couldn’t play stickball, boxball or touch football, we would head to Bobby’s house (or Leo’s or mine) to play APBA Baseball.
