We are a Baseball Family!
I am so glad it is that time of the year again!
Although all 3 of our sons play and we are running in every direction, I LOVE it!
I LOVE that they LOVE to play, I LOVE that my husband coaches, I LOVE to watch them come together as a team and play a GREAT game!
I did some research to see who "invented" this game. Here is what I found:
The history of baseball in the United States can be traced to the 18th century, when amateurs played a baseball-like game by their own informal rules using improvised equipment. The popularity of the sport inspired the semipro national baseball clubs in the 1860s. During the Civil War a rumor began that Abner Doubleday started baseball, but in reality baseball as we know it probably was first documented by Alexander Cartwright. The answer to the question of who started baseball is still unanswered and will likely remain that way.
Although we don't know who really started the game, we can honor them by enjoying it!
So, get out there and "play ball"-or at least watch a game!
