You forgot empty lot. We had one, right across the street from the playground we played stickball in. A good hitter could hit the ball out of the park and into the lot. The lot had a name Louie's lot. It had a few bushes and lots of vines and thick brush. If you were lucky the ball was right on top, if not you had a lot of digging to do. One time a few of us decided to dig through the brush and vines to get to the bottom. When we did we found years and years worth of Spaldens, ranging in color from bright pink (newer) to gray (older) some bounced others not so much. Yeah you did what you had to, to get the ball back.
