David Block has found a new reference to English base ball dating to 1749.  He notes that it is the first known base ball game involving mature adults.  The only earlier references, believed to be printed in the 1744 first edition of the Little Pretty Pocketbook and a reported reference to play within the English royal family written by Lady Hervey in 1748, depicted juvenile play.  We learn of this fresh find in the June 12 issue of the Daily Telegraph in Britain.
