"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" Source:

So it appears that it was England as opposed to Wales where Baseball was invented. The British invented baseball as inactive children in England needed some mild exercise so the game was created as a result. 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.

Baseball/Rounders the British (England) invented as an activity for unfit small kids, pitch, bat and run around 4 bases. 200 + years later its still very popular today among British kids up to 5th Grade.. girls have formalised competitions. I have checked and its popular among this age group in Cardiff and Swansea, South Wales. Reference..Baseball comes from Britain...

**People ask with Spalding guide of America in 1887 naming it 'World championship Series' attempting to entice other countries to play it of which it states Australia and Great Britain... why they don't play it, a major reason for this is the British invented Baseball aka Rounders and its historically been for children for whom it was intended.

If I am posting anything from overseas back Home (Cardiff area) I always put United Kingdom. This is due to not everyone knowing what Wales is.

James Cook, who was the first European to chart the area, named the entire eastern coast of Australia New South Walesbecause the countryside bore a resemblance to parts of southern Wales.

New South Wales was named by Lieutenant James Cook on his famous voyage in the Endeavour in 1770. When he saw the east coast of what is now called Australia, he named it after Wales, now part of the UK. New because it was, for him at least, and South because of its location. Hence, New South Wales.
