😀 In this blog I will talk about the history of Baseball, where it all started, when people started playing it, Baseball today and awesome facts about the sport. Also, I will show you a few clips of people playing Baseball.
Baseball is a game of two teams each with nine players. It is mainly played in America by teams like the New York Yankees and the New York Mets which are both major teams in the Baseball world. Click the link to watch the teams in action.
Even though, many people believe that baseball was created by Abner Doubleday, it was actually invented by Cartwright. The first officially recorded Baseball game in U.S history took place on the 19th of June, 1846, Hoboken, New Jersey. The score was 23 to the “New York Nine” and 1 to the Knickerbockers. In 1869, the Cincinnati Red Stockings became America’s first professional baseball club. In 1871, the National Association of Professional Baseball players was established as the sports first “Major league”.
