Description

The Evening Express, May 27, 1892: "Baseball. Georgetown v. Cardiff--The following players will represent the home team at Grangetown tomorrow (Saturday)..." (gives names of players)

This is probably a game called Welsh Baseball, sort of a mix of baseball, softball and cricket that was often played in Wales in the 1890s.

See also Cardiff Times, Aug. 30, 1890: "At present the youth of Newport play baseball on the side streets ..." Evening Express, June 30, 1892: "Baseball. Cardiff v. Grangetown--This return fixture will be played on Saturday at Cathays, when the following have been selected to represent Cardiff..." (gives names of players).
