Bat and Ball Game Illustration Appears in English Genealogical Roll
|Immediacy of Report|
|Age of Players|
"The [1301 - see below] illustration is a very early depiction of the game we know as baseball, but it's probably not the first. In 1964, a writer named Harry Simmons cited an English bat and ball picture from a genealogical roll of the Kings of England up to Henry III, who died in 1269."
