Cricket

        Cricket was invented in 1877.  It was played mainly by fast, athletic men.  William Gilbert Grace was one of the first cricket players.  He played for 44 years and retired when he was around 50. The required equipment is kind of similar to baseball.  One thing you need is simply a ball.  Cricket balls are normally red or white and they are wrapped in twine and then covered with leather. Next, you need a bat.  The bats are all wood from some sort of willow tree.  Some other necessary pieces of equipment are stumps and bails.  Cricket was played in some schools and some people just played it for fun. It isn’t played in America as much as it used to.  I think that there are many ways that sports are important. It brought many families together by giving them an enjoyable activity to either participate in or cheer for.
