Bat and Ball Game Illustration Appears in English Genealogical Roll

Salience Noteworthy
Text

"The [1301 - see below] illustration is a very early depiction of the game we know as baseball, but it's probably not the first. In 1964, a writer named Harry Simmons cited an English bat and ball picture from a genealogical roll of the Kings of England up to Henry III, who died in 1269."

Baltimore Sun article on the Ghistelle Calendar [see entry for 1301], April 6, 1999, page 1E.
