Baseball being an entirely American game is a myth


We need to put to bed the myth baseball is an entirely American game. The next time you hear baseball was invented in America, don’t pay any attention. Truth is, it’s based on a game that was popular hundreds of years ago. The American version caught on during the Civil War Era.

A cousin of cricket, baseball was adapted from Rounders, a game that features running around bases after hitting a ball. For that matter, a guy named Alexander Cartwright can lay claim as the father of the game, not Amber Doubleday. This happened at the dawn of the Civil War, but we give credit to the wrong person, and Cooperstown, New York was not involved in baseball’s creation.
