Up in the section of the country made famous by James Fenimore Cooper, there stands the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum. This museum is in Coopertown, New York. It is a small village and it is here that a man called Abner Doubleday was said to have laid out the first baseball diamond in 1839. Of course various types of ball games have been played for hundreds of years. On the North American continent ball games were played long before the white man came, though they may not have resembled our game of baseball very much. 1 , Abner Doubleday created the game of baseball by getting ideas from certain English games and combining them with his own to make a new kind of game. The first organized baseball club, called the Knickerbocker Baseball Club, was founded in New York in 1845. The man responsible was Alexander J. Cartwright, who drew up the game's first rules and provided for the first uniforms. Before that time each community had its own playing rules, and you can imagine the confusion when teams with different rules would meet for a game! The first professional baseball club was the Cincinnati Red Stockings. It was organized in 1869. The Red Stockings did quite a bit of traveling in their time, going from Massachusetts to California, taking on all comers, and covering a distance of more than 12,000 miles in one season. The first intercollegiate baseball game took place in 1859 when Williams and 'Amherst Colleges played each other. The National league was founded in 1876 and the American League in 1900. As a game, baseball is popular chiefly in the Western Hemisphere. There are teams and leagues in Canada, Cuba, Mexica, Venezuela, Panama, and Puerto Rico. In the Caribbean countries the fans are just as enthusiastic about baseball a we are in the United States. One of the most interesting examples of baseball's popular ity is in Japan. They have very good players there and team from Japan have visited the United States and major league players have gone to Japan to play exhibition games. FUN TIME Hie Riddle Box 1.
