Kitten ball is another name for softball. Softball was invented in 1887 and was designed to be an indoor sport. In 1895, a member of the Minneapolis, Minnesota fire department named Lewis Rober invented outdoor softball and named it Kitten League Ball, which was subsequently shortened to Kitten Ball. The name was changed from kitten ball to diamond ball in 1922 and eventually to softball in 1926.

How would shakespeare say Ladies and gentlemen?

Since the words "Ladies" and "Gentlemen" were both in his vocabulary, he could have said "ladies and gentlemen". However, these terms in his day were very specific markers of social class. He himself worked very hard to be entitled to call himself "William Shakespeare, gentleman". The only way he was allowed to call himself that was because his father had been granted a coat of arms. You will note that when Viola in Twelfth Night describes her parentage to Olivia she says, "I am a gentleman." That would specifically describe Cesario's social class, a class below Olivia's. Women were often called "ladies" when they were of various social classes. Thus Shakespeare conjoins lords and gentlemen, lords and ladies, and ladies and gentlemen. E.g. "Welcome, gentlemen! ladies that have their toes Unplagued with corns will have a bout with you." (Romeo and Juliet, 1,5)
