Description

The Cleveland Plain Dealer, May 26, 1907, under the title "First Game of Baseball Played in India," relates the story of one "T. McDermot," an ex-British army soldier of the Gordon Highlanders. McDermot relates that his unit viewed the Spalding tour game in Ceylon in 1889, and (inspired by this) members of the unit soon played a game at their new station, Kathmandu (now, capitol of Nepal). Both whites and natives (Gurkhas) played.
