Patch Baseball is evidently name for a form of baseball that allows the plugging of runners. We find the term used in upstate New York in about 1850. "Patching" is another word for "plugging" or "burning" baserunners.
See Protoball Chronology item 1850c.17. Thanks to Skip McAfee for explaining the term.
