Protoball Entry 1860.25 – Wicket and Base Ball at Kenyon College, OH

[After a report on Kenyon’s base ball club, including “the great fever which has raged for the laudable exercise of ball playing:”] “The heavier game of wicket has also had many admirers, and we doubt not but that many of them will live longer and be happier men on account of wielding the heavy bats.”

University Quarterly (Kenyon College, July 1860), page 198: Provided by Richard Hershberger, email of 8/22/2007. Accessed 2/17/10 via Google Books search ("heavier game of wicket").

Kenyon College is located about 40 miles SE of Toledo in Gambier OH.
