"The fourth of
June 1838 was a holiday in Canada. The Rebellion of 1837
had been closed by the victory of the Government over the
rebels, and the birthday of His Majesty King George the fourth
was set apart for general rejoicing.
The chief event at the village of Beachville,
in the county of Oxford, was a baseball match between the
Beachville Club and the Zorras." - Dr. Adam Enoch Ford
