By the time board game manufacturers began printing and selling games in the mid to later nineteenth century, baseball was already considered America's favorite pastime. And baseball board games appeared very early in game manufacturing.Types of games vary from simple races for young children to large-scale versions that make an attempt to duplicate the play of the game. This example, produced by Milton Bradley Company around 1900, is for young children. Players race around the bases and the winner is the first to reach home plate.
