Pesäpallo is Finnish baseball

"nestball" isn't an English word, even though it is a literal translation of pesäpallo!

Netball is something else. The English wiki just calls it pesäpallo: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pes%C3%A4pallo

There's no such thing as nestball in English.

Lol, pesäpallo IS NOT baseball. It's similar but not the same. Unsure whether it should be translated at all though.

Pease send us the entomology of "nestball." It seems a silly translations to native speakers of English.

Maybe it's a larval form of baseball!
