About Baseball

Baseball is a sport that has the capacity to create immense nostalgia among the Americans. Each American literally grows up on a healthy dose of baseball. It is considered to be a national pastime. Unlike other ballgames, baseball can be easily played by people having an average height and weight. The game of baseball originated even before the American Civil War (1861-1865). Initially it was known as Rounders - a game played on the sand lot. Gradually it was fine tuned and modified to a game that could take on a national stature.

Professional Baseball League was introduced in 1871. At the start of the 20th century, almost all the large cities in States had a baseball team. The teams belonged to either of the two Leagues - American or National. During the season, one team played against the other within the League. The winner was given something called a pennant. At the close of the standard season, both the pennant owners were pitted against each other. Roughly around seven games were played. The team that won at least four was declared the champion. The same rule applies even today. In the 1920s, Babe Ruth won various World Series titles for the Yankees.

In the middle of 1950, the game spread in fame and glory, crossing over geographical boundaries. Until 1970, there were strict binding contracts in baseball teams. Thus the players of the baseball teams were almost owned by the owners. But as time has progressed, the rules have become relaxed and the players can now play for any teams they desire to join.

It is believed that an American professor introduced baseball in Japan around 1870. The Japan Professional Baseball League was formed in 1930 and that when professional Japanese baseball began. Hideo Nomo was a very popular pitcher for the Los Angeles Dodgers. The game of baseball is pretty popular in places like Cuba and other Caribbean nations also.
