British Baseball (American Code)

British Baseball has as a longer History than most people imagine, with ac League dating back to the late 1800s. In the 1960s it was so popular there was a Professional League, with English Soccer teams like Tottenham Hotspur, Nottingham Forest and Derby County fielding teams in it. The name of Derby County’s Soccer Ground: “The Baseball Grounds” is a testament to how popular it once was. [Reference: Josh Chetwynd “Baseball in Europe”]
