Someone needs to show today’s young whipper-snappers how the game is played.

The “Old Boys of Summer” – a group of seasoned minor league baseball players between 50 and 70 years old – marched to the Prospect Park Parade Ground, Parkside Avenue between Coney Island Avenue and Parade Place last week for a special sandlot skirmish against the front office staff of the Brooklyn Cyclones.

The fun filled day brought the likes of former Chicago Cubs pitcher Tony Balasmo and longtime Houston Astros coach Matt Galante back to the borough of dreams, as well as promote the book “The Boys of Brooklyn,” by Old Boys of Summer member Andrew Mele.

“The Boys of Brooklyn” chronicles the history of baseball at the Parade Grounds.
