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.
It wasn't. Rounders is a differant game similar to Baseball but with a differant set of rules. There is debate as to how much Rounders influenced the creation of Baseball.

I know that Rounders was a game that was played in England before colonists came to America so I think this might be your answer. Rounders is kind of like baseball.
Rounders is "Schlagball" in German.

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).
Baseball originated from a British game called rounders.
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.
A similar game was played called Rounders.
basically the same as a baseball and softball field
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 evolved from a British game of rounders
