Hi bloggers,

I found this picture of an event that took place in our old neighborhood.  I'll call it the PUMPKIN PITCH.  All the kids in the neighborhood would gather all the pumpkins from Halloween, usually on the first weekend day following Halloween, and stack them into a pyramid type formation.  It was always during baseball playoffs so baseball fever was in the air.  I'm not really sure how it all started but once it did it stuck around.  Anyway, baseball and pumpkins made the natural progression to stack the pumpkins and pitch baseballs at them until they were pretty much destroyed.  Of course you would try to smash everyone elses pumpkin and not your own.  It was so much fun.  Here are some more pictures of the great PUMPKIN PITCH.



  1. What a great idea Meg! Then you could donate them to the neighborhood P-Patch or compost pile. I know the local zoo's can feed them to the hippo's as well. Fun idea's for getting the community together. Who's serving Hot cider?? T

  2. I really like this idea! What a fun neighborhood you lived in. You should definitely (sp)! start this in your new place. Fun chatting with you tonight! Love you!
