William Cauldwell, ca. 1874




Pioneer baseball reporter and editor of the Sunday Mercury William Cauldwell (born 1824) wrote to the Mills Commission in 1905:I may say that I can speak as a New York boy from away back and in an all my experiences I had no knowledge of the prominence of a ball game called ‘rounders.’ I played ball in my native city from the time I was (to use an old time phrase) ‘knee high to a mosquito’ dating back to a period when Fourteenth Street was considered out of town, and I can speak from what I know.”
