Description

"Malta received its first taste of baseball on 29 April 1890 when teams from Boston and Atlanta played a 'hotly contested match on the Malta polo grounds,' according to Spalding's 1891 Official Base Ball Guide. "The [attending military ] Englishmen seemed very much mystified all throughout the game, but the ladies enjoyed it very much.'"

Josh Chetwynd, Baseball in Europe (McFarland, 2008), pages 216-216.
