UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.
Application filed December To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, U'r'ro J. ErsELn, citizen of the United States, residing New York city, in the county of New York and State of New York, have invented a new and useful Game of Baseball, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact specification.
This invention relates to a basebali game, and has for its object to provide a structure which is more simple in construction, as a means of signifying the acts or plays that comprise the original game of base ball, than such games asheretofore made. Other objects will appear as the description proceeds.
The invention will, be first hereinafter described in connection with the accompanying drawings, which constitute part of this specification, and then more specifically defined in the claims at the end of the description.
In the accompanying drawings, wherein similar reference characters are used to designate corresponding parts throughout the several views Figure 1 is a perspective view of a cube.
Fig. 2, showing signs, as marked on the faces of the cube in Fig. 1.
Fig. 3, is a perspective view of a cube.
Fig. l, showing signs, as marked on the faces of the cube in Fig. 3.
When the cubes, as shown, in Fig. 1, and Fig. 3, are thrown or rolled from the hand onto a flat surface, any Sign as shown in Fig. 2, and Fig. 1, can appear on the top face of the said cubes, after the said. cubes have stopped rolling. The signs as they appear on the top face of the cubes, after being thrown or rolled from the hand or otherwise a sufficient number of times, can

signify 36 acts or plays of the original game of base ball.
The cubes, as shown in Fig. 1, and Fig. 3, are made of any suitable material, and the signs, as shown in Fig. 2, and Fig. 4;, may be marked, printed, moulded or pressed thereon, or shown thereon by any other suitable means.
A score is kept in accordance with the signs as they appear. O,signifies-- out. Bs signify base. Blsignify--ball. E;%signify-strike or single. 1 and 2-- signify-the number out. The number of bases. The number of balls. The number of strikes.
When Es appears on one cube and Bl appears on the other it will signify-base on balls.
S and Bs-signify-single base.
S and Blsignify-single ball.
0 and l-signify-one out. Etc. Etc.
While playing this game of base ball, the sign that appears on one cube is always read with the sign that appears on the other cube.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent of the United States is In a base ball game comprising a pair of cubes, the faces of the first cube having marked thereon the separate signs Bs, Bs, S, S, 2, 1, and the faces of the second cube having marked thereon the separate signs Bl, B], S, O, 1, 2, said arrangement of signs to determine a game of base ball by means of reading the signs on the alternate faces of the first and second cubes as they appear on top after the cubes have been thrown a sufficient number of times.
