  • Regular price $11.00

If you are a native, you know all about Schnitzelburg. Right down the street from Manual Stadium, Schnitzelburg is famous for a street ball game called "Dainty," a game where a flat, bat-like stick is used to strike another stick on the ground, making it airborne, which is then hit like a baseball as far as possible. The last Monday of every (non-COVID) July the World Dainty Championship is held in the neighborhood, at the corner of Goss Avenue and Hoertz Avenue, site of the old Hauck's Handy Store.

George Hauck, of Schnitzelburg's World Dainty Championship and Hauck's Handy store fame, passed away at age 100 in September 2020. One of the true greats of "The Greatest Generation," George volunteered for the US Navy just days after Pearl Harbor, served his country through World War II and returned home to run the family store until it closed in 2019 after 112 years in business. George was truly the heart and soul of the Schnitzelburg community, and he will be sincerely missed.
