AMERICAN BASEBALL GAME, THE OVAL, KENNINGTON

An exhibition match of American baseball held on 12th March 1889 at Kennington Oval attended by the Prince of Wales. The Graphic notes, 'the damp and dismal weather prevented those present from viewing the game satisfactorily...the exhibition of batting was a disappointment, the fact being that the batsman in baseball is heavily handicapped. He is provided with a bat with which it is very difficult to hit the ball accurately, and, unlike the cricketer, he is circumscribed in his running privileges..'From The Graphic, dated 23rd March 1889Ref: Surrey-ana Vol.20 p.141
