A variation of baseball that has been played in the St. Louis, MO, area since the early 1900s. Servicemen during World War II helped spread the game to other parts of the country. The game differs from baseball, stickball, and other bat-and-ball games in that there is no base running.
There are several corkball clubs in the St. Louis area, where the sport is still played at area parks with special corkball fields over a hundred years after it was first played.
