Town-Ball

Age of Players:

""Instead of the former amusements, which gave so much activity and health to those who partook of them, and gave so much offense to those who pretend to be the engineer of our morals, we have Billiards, Cricket matches, Town-Ball, Bowling-alleys, &c., for those who can spare the time to partake of the amusement…”."

Comment:

 This isn't the first attestation of the term "town ball" but it's very early.
