Question: What English sport is the precursor to baseball?

Bat and ball
Rounders
Bandy
Fetch-catch

Played in England since the 16th century, rounders shares many commonalities with baseball — they’re both played with a bat, there are bases, and players can get “out.” But in rounders, the bat is much shorter, pitches are thrown underhand, there are no gloves, and there is only one throw — a batter runs on a hit or a miss.

The Answer: The correct answer is Fetch-catch.
