Really weird stuff what i got here, i actually don´t understand the whole reason but is a very interesting connection. Enjoy the read,

Much mystery and exaggeration surrounds the influence of Freemasonry on the birth and growth of these United States. Freemasonry was conducted in private with exclusive membership; it comes under the title of an occult group because, by definition, this is a group that conducts business in private with exclusive initiation. While most of its members have been good men, of course there are those who spoil the image… there are instances of Freemasonry’s exploitation as a training ground for other, malevolent groups.

American Freemasonry’s history goes back as far as American History… in some ways they are parallel. George Washington was the Grand Master of a Lodge, and there were even actions taken to create the rank of Grand Master of the whole of the United States for him. According to the Grand Lodge of Texas, “On September 18, 1783, President George Washington dressed in his Masonic apron, leveled the cornerstone of the United States Capitol with the traditional Masonic ceremony.” Eight signers of the Declaration of Independence were Freemasons: Benjamin Franklin, Robert Treat Paine, John Handcock, Richard Stockton, Joseph Hewes, George Walton, William Hooper, and William Whipple. Thirteen who signed the United States Constitution were Freemasons: Gunning Bradford Jr., John Blair, Benjamin Franklin, David Brearley, Nicholas Gilman, Jacob Broom, Rufus King, Daniel Carrol, James McHenery, Jonathan Dayton, William Paterson, John Dickinson and, of course, George Washington.

The layout of Washington D.C. was done in precise accords with Masonic symbolism. The White House is situated at the tip of a large compass created by Vermont Avenue and Connecticut Avenue as they lead north. Of course, the emblem of Freemasonry is a compass overlapping a square (the tool). Two right triangles meet exactly between Connecticut Avenue and Vermont Avenue at 16th Street. The Washington Monument (phallic symbol) is positioned precisely south from where the two right triangles meet, and the tip of the compass at the White House. Look for your self on

Baseball was obviously created by Freemasons, as it bears the unmistakable marks of Freemasonry. The field, from home plate to the left and right field wall forms a compass; the entire outfield wall is the semicircle which this compass draws. Upside-down, overlapping this compass, the bases form the square. Thus, the baseball field is the emblem of Freemasonry. Three strikes and three outs were assigned because three is the principle sacred number of Freemasonry. Four is a number of significance because it represents a square (the shape) and deals with the four directions, thus: four balls, four bases. Nine is sacred because it is three squared… there are nine fielding positions and nine innings. This brings us to a total of twenty-seven outs per team a game…and guess what? Twenty-seven, along with eighty-one, are the only two sacred numbers greater than ten. Though eighty-one doesn’t occur in baseball, because of the presence of two nines (fielders and innings) it’s appropriate to mention the reason eighty-one is so revered: the multiples of nine, 9, 18, 27, 36, 45, 54, 63, 72, 81, and 90 form a mirror image between the numbers 45 and 54. Also, each one of these numbers equal nine when adding the two integers which comprise the number: 18- 1+8 = 9; 27- 2+7 =9; etc. Because of this, nine times nine was deemed a ‘high’ number. This further explains the near obsession with numbers surrounding baseball averages, home runs, ERA’s, etc. It is truly a game for numerologists.

Yeah, not to mention how FDR got this country started on its spiral like a turd in a toilet bowl while wearing his cute little apron and practicing his Lion's Paw.

Wow Valhall, do you always have such a good grasp on History?

As for the baseball thing, interesting conclusion
But considering a masonic ring and how it should be worn, I'd think the compass were bases 1,2,3 and the square would be bases 3,home,1 .... so that the crowd is "receiving light"

But then...I guess you could say that it was the other way and the outfeilders are receiving the light....

Eh...what's the shape of a cricket field? It could just be an oddball coincidence
