A ball that beaned a British bureaucrat has led to the banning of a revered American expatriate tradition, the Hyde Park softball league. But enthusiasts say the ban imposed by the Environment Department is just not cricket. One player has been quoted as blaming it on anti-Americanism. The department says it prohibited the games after one of its officials was hit on the head by a ball as he was strolling through Hyde Park last month.

John Pemberton reaches into his back pocket, pulls out a small broom, bends low and sweeps the dirt left and then right, manicuring the white strip of rubber in the middle of the pitcher's circle. Upright again, he lifts the bill of his dark blue cap and tilts his head for a final inspection. Satisfied, he breaks into a trot and hustles over to first base. For nearly half a century, Pemberton, 77, has operated in the organized mayhem of high school, college and professional sports.
