Block:English Baseball in Berkshire on June 2 1909
|Add a Block Game|
“Baseball” was part of the fun for members of the Wesley Institute of Maidenhead, Berkshire, who spent the holiday romping in Maidenhead Thicket, the wooded area west of town. A newspaper reported that “they spent the afternoon until 4 o'clock on such games as baseball and cricket, and at that hour sat down to a much-appreciated tea.”
Maidenhead Advertiser, June 2, 1909, p 5.
It is probable they were playing English baseball as the game had a long history in Maidenhead and environs.
