1863.2 New Marlboro Match Base Ball Co. Goes Hybrid

Tags:

Interscholastic

Location:

Massachusetts

Game:

Base Ball

Age of Players:

Youth

Apparently not liking either the New York Rules or Massachusetts Game Rules, the two formal sets available to them, the boys of the South Berkshire Institute, a prep school in New Marlborough, MA, drew up a hybrid game. Their version is rare in that its documentation has survived.

Sources:

Richard Hershberger, "The 'New Marlboro Match Base Ball Co.' of 1863", in Base Ball (McFarland, Spring 2010), p. 87. The documents, part of an autograph album, are part of a private collection.
