Impossible to say, as the game we now call "baseball" evolved over many decades. Nobody can ever state with any exactness that, "Every game played prior to this date was NOT baseball, but the game played on this date WAS." In 1791, a game specifically named "baseball" was banned from being played within eighty yards of the town hall of Pittsfield, Massachusetts. The exact rules of the game being banned are impossible to determine. The first RECORDED instance of a game played with WRITTEN rules similar to those of modern baseball was on 1846 June 19. Whether the writing of these "Knickerbocker Rules" was a deliberate attempt to change the game of town ball, or simply the first written record of how the game had evolved over the years, is impossible to determine.
