Baseball inspired millions of people in the United States. It
evolved from the old bat and ball games which used to be
played in England during the 18th century. The immigrants
who came to settle in North America were the ones responsible
to bring this game to the Americans. Eventually they came up
with the modern version of the game and by the end of 19th
century baseball was being recognised as the National Sport of
US. The first recorded American reference of baseball in US
traces its way back to the year 1791, which was an ordinance
passed in Pittsfield, Massachusetts. The uproar created by the
cheering crowd was the reason on the game being banned
from being played anywhere near 80 yards from the town
meeting house.
Later in the 19th century the growing racism got the good of
the sport. Things got worse and eventually ended by the first
black baseball club called the Cuban Giants. Later in the year
1920 the Negro National League was established. The game
war is on since then and there have been several popular
teams. The Yankees dominated them all though.
The game saw an evolution over the years, from where it
began, as a game which was the heart of the people and then
media, marketing, agencies all came in and changed the
purpose of the game all together. It became more of a higher
brand and more popularity thing.
This eBook discusses about the history of baseball and how it
evolved over the years to gain its place in the hearts of the
people who so passionately play or watch the baseball games.
