Back in July 1950, a "tall, broad-shouldered American, complete with wide-brimmed hat" caused a stir in Lundin Links on a visit to promote the sport of soft-ball. Mr William Bird, who hailed from North Dakota, was in Lundin Links for a month, with soft-ball equipment in tow. According to the 26 July Leven Mail, every day "youngsters could be seen on Lundin Links Common enthusiastically mastering the intricacies" of the sport. Described as being very similar to 'rounders', soft-ball requires only a bat, a soft ball and a glove for the 'catcher'. The initiative was encouraged by the American Society in Scotland as a way of bringing about a closer understanding between the youth of the two countries.
