John Adams Recalls Youthful Bat and Ball Play
|Immediacy of Report|
|Age of Players|
Saying that his first fifteen years "went off like a fairy tale," John Adams [1735-1826] wrote fondly "of making and sailing boats . . swimming, skating, flying kites and shooting marbles, bat and ball, football, . . . wrestling and sometimes boxing."
David McCullough, John Adams [Touchstone Books, 2001], page 31.
