Description

The book "Baseball Beyond the Borders" (2017) pp. xxix, says that US navy personnel at the naval station in Barbados played baseball, but the game was never taken up by the cricket-loving natives.

The book author taught in Barbados, a tiny island nation in the Caribbean. Cricket matches there are recorded as early as 1865.

The naval station was open 1957-1979.
