MA Regiment Plays Daily Intramural Games in Spring Months

Salience Peripheral
Tags Civil War, Military

“The 13th Massachusetts played amongst themselves daily during April and May of 1862.”

Patricia Millen, From Pastime to Passion: Baseball and the Civil War (Heritage Books, 2001), page 19. Millen cites S. Crockett, “Sports and Recreational Practices of Union and Confederate Soldiers, Research Quarterly October 1961, pp?. Crockett article is unprocured as of May 2009, and primary source is unknown. Note: It would be useful to know what game the regiment played, and how they named it. The regiment was reportedly at Ship Island, MS, in these months.
