From Protoball Entry #1860c.11 – Man Played Base Ball in CT Before the War

"I am a native of Hartford, Conn., and have, from early boyhood, taken a great interest in all Out Door Sports that are clean and manly. As a boy I played One, Two, Three, and Four Old Cat; also the old game of "Wicket." I remember that before the Civil War, I don't remember how long, we played base ball at my old home, Manchester, Hartford County, CT."

Letter from Philip W. Hudson, Houston Texas, to the Mills Commission, July 23, 1905.

Manchester CT is about 10 miles E of Hartford.
