English Baseball

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.

Block Notes

It is probable they were playing English baseball as the game had a long history in Maidenhead and environs.
