The question of the origins of baseball has been the subject of debate and controversy for more than a century. Here is one brief version:

In 1907 The Mills Commission (an "official" group of baseball players) issued a report stating that Abner Doubleday invented baseball in 1839 in Cooperstown, New York based on letters by a mining engineer from Denver named Abner Graves who claimed he knew where baseball started. He went to school in Cooperstown, New York, with a man named Abner Doubleday. Graves claimed Doubleday changed all the rules of the “town ball” everyone played at the time. He said Doubleday drew a diamond in the dirt, set the number of players, and added the four bases.

In 1934, an old, homemade ball was found just three miles from Cooperstown. The ball became the “Doubleday baseball.” The ball and other artifacts soon became the National Baseball Museum.

In 1936, the first players (including Ty Cobb and Babe Ruth) were elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame. In 1939, there was a big ceremony at the new National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown, New York. {james martell}
