An early form of the game was apparently brought to North America by English immigrants. Rounders was also brought to the continent by both British and Irish immigrants.
The first known American reference to baseball appears in a 1791 Pittsfield, Massachusetts, town bylaw prohibiting the playing of the game near the town's new meeting house.
By 1796, a version of the game was well-known enough to earn a mention in a German scholar's book on popular pastimes. As described by Johann Gutsmuths, "englische Base-ball" involved a contest between two teams, in which "the batter has three attempts to hit the ball while at the home plate". Only one out was required to retire a side.
Who was Wahoo Sam?
Samuel Earl Crawford (April 18, 1880 – June 15, 1968), nicknamed "Wahoo Sam", was a Major League Baseball player who played outfield for the Cincinnati Reds and Detroit Tigers. He was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1957.
Crawford batted and threw left-handed, stood 6 ft 0 in (1.83 m) tall and weighed 190 pounds. He was one of the greatest sluggers of the dead-ball era and still holds the Major League's records for triples in a career (309) and inside-the-park home runs in a season (12). He has the second best all-time record for most inside-the-park home runs in a career (51). He finished his career with 2,961 hits and a .309 batting average, and became first player to lead both American League and the National League in home runs (1901 and 1908). Every now and then you learn something new like knowing about the Little Rock Travelers.
The Little Rock Travelers were an American minor league baseball team located in Little Rock, Arkansas and members (1902–1910, 1915–1958, 1960–1961) of the Southern Association, which as a Class A, A1 or AA circuit was typically two rungs below Major League Baseball. When farm systems came into being in the 1930s, the Travelers were at different times affiliated with the Boston Red Sox, Detroit Tigers, Kansas City Athletics, and Baltimore Orioles.
After attracting less than 68,000 paying customers over a 77-game home schedule in 1958, the Travelers moved to Shreveport, Louisiana in 1959, but they returned to the Southern Association in 1960 as the relocated New Orleans Pelicans franchise. But the Association was in its death throes, and the Travelers went down with the entire league after the 1961 season.
