TextThis property is a special property in this wiki. <p>George Forrest, <span style="t <p>George Forrest, <span style="text-decoration: underline;">The Playground: or, The Boy's Book of Games</span> [G. Rutledge, London, 1858, pp. 67-72]. Available via Google Books.</p> <p>The manual covers rounders, cricket, and trapball - but not stoolball.</p> <p>Among the features shown: when only a few players were available, backward hits were not in play; leading and pickoffs were used in rounders; the rounders bat is three feet long; two strikes and you're out in trapball; and when a cat is used in place of a ball in rounders, plugging is not allowed. <strong><br /></strong></p> g><br /></strong></p>
