Would you agree with me that the whole "Abner Doubleday" thing is a myth, because I certainly believe it is. Baseball's Hall of Fame is in
Cooperstown, where it is believed that Abner Doubleday invented the game, though is no actual proof of Doubleday even being to Cooperstown.
Baseball's first game was played at the elysian fields in Hoboken. The teams were the Knickerbockers (managed by Alexander Carthright) and the New
York Baseball Club. The real Hall of Fame should be in Hoboken, and it was Alexander Carthright who REALLY invented the game.
