Best Answer

The British invented it. Verified Source of Origin.... "The game of Rounders has been played in England since Tudor Times, with the earliest reference being in 1744 in "A Little Pretty Pocketbook" where it is called Baseball. It is a striking and fielding team game, which involves hitting a small hard leather cased ball with a round wooden or metal bat and then running around 4 bases in order to score"

The reason British invented baseball (Rounders the other name for it)... was inactive children in England at the time needed some mild exercise so the game was created as a result, historically its been a childrens game for who it was intended. In Commonwealth nations its played by many kids up to age 11.. while its very popular as a girls game with UK having organised nationwide Leagues.
