History of Baseball 101
Baseball is inspired by cricket, which dates as far back as the 16th century.
Did you know that baseball was created in the summer of 1839 by a man named Abner Doubleday in Cooperstown, NY? Furthermore, Abner Doubleday went on to become an American Civil War hero. You can’t get more American than that, can you? Seriously, even Abraham Lincoln looks like a complete foreigner compared to someone with those stats in his bio.
Okay, Abe is a far stretch, but you get the point: Mr Doubleday is as American as The Star Spangled Banner itself. It is also important to state that the origins of America’s Greatest Pastime are highly debated among baseball aficionados. Then again there are people who debate that the Earth is flat, so we humans are basically inclined to create arguments out of anything.
The fact of the matter is that it makes for a nice story, so we can leave it as that until Mr Doubleday’s spirit visits all of us personally in our dreams.
