Miss the good old days when baseball meant Willie, Mickey and the Duke? When the Yankees, Brooklyn Dodgers or New York Giants seemed to appear in every World Series? Remember when Max Zaslofsky brought basketball fans to their feet at the old Madison Square Garden or when Wilt Chamberlain scored 100 points against the Knicks in an NBA game in Hershey, Pa., when he played for the Philadelphia Warriors?

Relive your sports memories at Long Beach Library Wednesday at 2 p.m. in a discussion on baseball and basketball back in the 1950s and 1960s. If you have any sports memorabilia from that period, bring it along and share it with the group.

For more information, call 516-432-7201. The event is free, and all Long Islanders are welcome.
