A rounders player named Alexander J. Cartwright said that instead of throwing the ball at a player to get him out, they should tag the player instead.
It was a game called rounders until it changed over time. It started out in it's first league in the late 1800's.
Baseball is still baseball in England - there are many significant differences between baseball and rounders, for example, runs (known themselves as rounders) are only scored in rounders when a single player runs around all four bases. There are two separate Rounders associations in the British Isles, that which exists in England is called the National Rounders Association (NRA), and that which exists in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland, the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA).
Rounders came to the US with the Jamestown Colony in Virginia. The American game of Baseball slowly evolved from that British game. In rounders there were 3 bases and home plate. I think all 9 players batted and there were 3 innings. They changed sides after the 9th player batted. The rules were similar but not the same.
Baseball originated from a British game called rounders.
American baseball was derived from both rounders and cricket, which are both traditional British bat-and-ball games. In rounders, which was often played in town squares, stakes were driven into the ground to act as bases. During the late 1800s, people replaced the stakes with bases, and began to refer to it as "townsball." This eventually morphed into "baseball," and set guidelines of rules and regulations were set in writing in 1845.
Certain penalties will be incurred depending on which rules are broken.
