I guess you can say that being a Dominican born and raise, baseball is embedded in my DNA…Yes, Dominicans are big baseball fans and thinking about it brings warm memories of friendly rivalry. My mom and I are fans of one team, my brothers are fans of a different team…I know, how dare they!
Baseball is also a beloved game in the United States, and while the exact origin of baseball remains a mystery, most historians agree that baseball gained popularity in the US in the early 19th century.
Teams started to form and baseball clubs started to pop up in bigger cities. It was around 1845 when Alexander Cartwright wanted to give the game a formal list of rules for the teams to follow during the games.
Believe it or not, most of that original set of rules are the same today, making Cartwright the father of baseball despite the fact that Abner Doubleday is believed to be the inventor of the baseball game.
Originally, the league was supposed to be formed of amateurs, but with the growing popularity of the sport, teams had to travel and that, of course, brought about added expenses and some players started to be secretly paid for playing.
It was in 1869 that the Cincinnati Red Stockings decided to become a completely professional team and the Wright brothers drafted the best players from around the country. This created an all-star team that landed the Cincinnati team a total of sixty-five games that year and the idea of paid players quickly caught on.
It was 1871 when the National Association became the first professional baseball league.
Since then, the game of baseball has seen its ups and downs and some will say that the sport has been losing ground with the new generation. They seem to prefer faster and instant entertainment from other sports like football and basketball.
The truth is, baseball is a more calculated and paused form of entertainment, but that’s the beauty of the game and there are lots of old and new fans that love the sport. Men, women, and kids that love the sport and love showing their love for baseball through clothing and accessories that represent baseball.
