By the mid 1850s, America embraced the sport of baseball. Baseball board games appeared just as soon as manufacturers developed the technology to print them. McLoughlin Brothers, a premier New York game manufacturer, produced one version of "Game of Base-Ball" in 1886. A deluxe game, it features dual spinners which fit directly onto the game board, a chalkboard for scoring, a realistic baseball field, and painted lead figures of baseball players. A very lucky child played this game!
