Description

Satisfactory evidence has yet to be collected, but it appears that a Polish game, quadrant, is a lively base-running game.

We have come across three YouTube videos on the game, none in English. The field resembles a three-base baseball diamond.  Batters are seem to put the ball into play with a one-handed club, usually with an uprightstroke resembling an overhand tennis serve.  The ball must, apparently, travel in the air past a line between first and third base.  Caught flies are outs.  The batter-runner advances as far as possible, but some rule limits that advance -- perhaps when the fielding team throws the fielded ball past a the batter's line.  Players depicted are children and school-age youths or both genders.  Plugging is not depicted.
