Abstract

“In 1907, the major-league owners who had initiated an inquiry into baseball’s origin were delighted to accept a report that baseball had been miraculously invented by Abner Doubleday at Cooperstown in 1839.” 2 Thus, Doubleday, also a Civil War hero, joined James Fenimore Cooper as native elite of Cooperstown.
