Welcome to CricketWeb - glad that the inability to play the game doesn't necessarily prevent people (you and quite a few others) from taking an interest in it.Originally Posted by jhans
An interesting aside - in England, there was a guy from Derby in the 1890's went to America and was heavily influenced by baseball - so much so that when he came back to this country, he tried to introduce the sport.
A custom-built stadium was built in his home town, but the sport never took off. A local football club (my team - Derby County) bought the Baseball Ground and played there for a century (they have now moved to Pride Park, but there's not much pride in their play any more).
Perhaps it explains why I like hot dogs.
