An old look at an old topic

There have been many articles and posts and conversations about the differences cricket and baseball, and which is best. There are many in the UK who despise baseball, and want it banished from the earth, because it offends their British sensibilities. Mostly that anything American can be popular and good.

This article from the New York Times is about the formation of baseball leagues in England, and how popular it is becoming. It even states that baseball

makes cricket seem dull
Pretty radical.

One of the selling points about baseball over cricket was that it could be played in 2 hours and not drag out over 3 days, and still end in a draw.

The most interesting thing about the article.

Check out the date!
