“Baseball” was mentioned in a local council discussion about the cleanliness of the Whitehill School of Crowborough, East Sussex, as reported in a local newspaper. The medical officer, Mr. Stott, complained the school was not being cleaned adequately. Another participant, Mr. Corfe, “said the schools were swept and cleaned every night. When Mr. Stott called there was a little sand in one of the basins, and that was caused by a child washing its hands after playing baseball. He went to the school after Mr. Stott had left, and he denied that there had been any neglect on the part of the caretaker.”
