TextThis property is a special property in this wiki. <p>"BALL PLAYING.</p> <p> <p>"BALL PLAYING.</p> <p>"A game at ball is a very nice play. The boys have a bat. and<br />they hit the ball with it and knock it away. Sometimes the boys miss the<br />ball, and then the catcher catches it, and they have to be out. Sometimes<br />they knock it over the fence, and then the boy that knocked it over has to<br />be out. There are two kinds of ball playing; the base ball and the cat and<br />dog ball. When the boys play cat and dog ball, they have two bats and four<br />boys. Two of the boys take the bats, and the other two throw the ball from<br />one to the other past the boys who have the bats, at the same time one<br />throws the other tries to catch him out."</p> <p>Nyack, Dec, 1856. T.—<br />Dis 4.</p> <p> </p> />Dis 4.</p> <p> </p>
