Description

From William Humber's manuscript "Early Canadian Baseball, 9/6/12:

[O]n 14 July 1803, and as recorded in the 1878 Belden Atlas, a game of ball was played to decide who was to pay for the dinner following a three day meeting of the First Court of the Quarterly Sessions held in Hope Township of Newcastle District (about 60 miles east of the site of Playter's game). The game was held on the property of a former American resident Leonard Soper on Lot 22 Concession 1 of Hope Township. Historical Atlas of Northumberland and Durham Counties Illustrated, (H. Belden and Co., 1878) reprinted (Mika Publishing, 1974). The game would have been of an early baseball-type however its legitimacy, recorded 75 years after its play, is questionable.
