Stickball: An Ancient Sport


Author(s):
Abstract:
Stickball is the ancestor of lacrosse and has been popular across North America for centuries. In the olden days it was a sometimes violent game and death and injuries were not uncommon. The object of the game was to score a certain number of points in the opponent's goal. The tradition is continued among the modern Cherokees but on a less violent level.
