    Yeah in rounders the bat is also rounded, but a lot shorter than a baseball bat, I'd say the bat is about the same size as from the tip of your elbow to the top of your hand. But in primary school they let us use wooden paddle like bats as an alternative if we weren't comfortable using the rounded bat. And we played with a tennis ball, though not sure if that's the 'official' ball that one uses for the game.

    Now that I think more about it, I wish we had softball leagues or a rounders leagues around here, would be great to do that in the summer, and it's way more exciting than cricket.

    There are rounders leagues (at least certainly in the midlands).

    I've thought about joining a softball league for the banter. It is actually good fun plus it feels pretty freaking great to smack that ball haha.

    I also know very little about cricket. I heard it is a lot like baseball so I've never really cared to look into it that much.

    Oh really? If they are around this way then they're certainly not that well publicised or advertised.

    The ball used in softball is pretty satisfying to hit to be fair

    Cricket's not really similar to baseball. At least, it's not as similar as rounders or softball is to it.

    I mean softball is essentially baseball with a different ball and a different method of pitching the ball haha

    Is Rounders just based off of baseball then? Very similarly to Softball in that sense?

    Yeah I would assume that it's a spin off of baseball/softball.

    I feel like I need to play this game at some point in my life but none of my friends would play it because it would be more difficult than playing baseball.

    Do you guys play kickball over in the UK? That was the shit when you were a kid over here. haha

    Cricket isn't anything like baseball (except they are both mind crushingly boring) the only good thing about cricket is going to see it live and seeing how pissed you can get.
