OK, so now its official!  America’s biggest brand community, the sport that is synonymous with US family life is English!

Yes, baseball was invented in England.  Well, according to the newly discovered diaries of Englishman William Bray who records a major baseball game being played in the Surrey town of Guildford way back in 1755!  That’s more than twenty years before the American declaration of independence!  There’s no doubt about it, like mountain biking, hamburgers, apple pie and a whole lot more, baseball is just another hand-me-down that Americans have plagiarised!  The evidence is now on show at the Surrey History Centre.

Oh, and, one more thing.  It was a womens’ game, but then again we Brits always knew that, didn’t we?
