It really is Rounders

Contrary to what you may have been told elsewhere, Baseball was invented in England and known as “Rounders“. Jane Austen was writing about it 40 years before before it was “invented” in America. New research also suggests that Barbara Cartland invented Grid Iron and Sir Issac Newton invented basketball when an apple fell into his waste paper bin.

It’s a brave new world America, are you ready for it?
