Apparently a variant spelling of base ball. The most famous usage is in a Princeton student’s diary entry for 1786, which reveals only that the game involves catching and hitting.


See Protoball Chronology entry #1786.1.  A second entry, #1848c.9, includes baste ball in a list of boyhood games played by future US President Benjamin Harrison.
