Closing Bell: Brooklyn Kickballers Blocked


The much talked about Brooklyn Kickball League has hit a snag this season. The Brooklyn Paper reports that some newly planted trees, as part of Mayor Bloomberg’s Million Trees program, has forced the league to reconfigure the fields which puts players at risk of colliding with each other in the outfield. The city says they didn't plant the trees in that location out of malice. Some of the players want the trees moved, while others say just keep playing around them. Kickballer Brian Riccardi adds that "hopefully there are no collisions, but considering our steady diet of PBR, someone is bound to get hurt."
