Not one person invented the game. Baseball's earliest known "existence" was in an old English game called "rounders." It consisted of a short field and bases. The field was so short do to the fact that the battered balls did not hit far. As the sport grew new rules were added. More and more rules were added to the point of the Civil War when it was first called baseball, supposedly in Cooperstown, NY and that is why the Hall of Fame is located their.
