Sorry Marine..but sports origins intrest me greatly..i have learned alot from MSG Glenn about kenpo and the history of BJJ

Baseball is a devlopment from rounders witch is an Irish/English mix
I have a baseball book and it states..The distinct evolution of baseball from among the various bat-and-ball games is difficult to trace . Oina, a very similar bat-and-ball traditional game played in Romania was mentioned for the first time during the rule of King Vlaicu Voda, in 1364. While there has been general agreement that modern baseball is a North American development from the older game rounders, the 2006 book Baseball Before We Knew It: A Search for the Roots of the Game, by David Block, . Several references to "baseball" and "bat-and-ball" have been found in British and American documents of the early eighteenth century.The earliest known description is in a 1744 British publication, A Little Pretty Pocket-Book, by John Newbery. It contains a wood-cut illustration of boys playing "base-ball," showing a baseball set-up roughly similar to the modern game, and a rhymed description of the sport.

BTW, all the sports trivia has been very interesting!
