Ice-Hockey in Waltham Massachusetts 1858

Recommended Posts

Great Find @james laverance  I enjoy these.



"One of the wooden balls, with which this game is played, swerved from the direction which was intended to be sent by the batter, and struck his face ..."

 Interesting comment there of "by the batter"   a blend of baseball and hockey ?



"This game should at once be abandoned by the boys, as it is dangerous to life and limb, or else substitute balls of more elastic material."    


Yep, a hard rubber puck.  lol


Nearly 150 years later ... the game isn't much less dangerous, just more exciting.

:lol: The boys probably should avoid the game. But 

thankfully for us fans they don't! :hockey1: :check:     


Cheers on all your research and related threading, James! :56ce4e56dc2e8_HighFiveSmileys:
