*Encore Episode* #33 - Mini-Myth: Abner Doubleday and Baseball

Nov. 6, 2016

Abner Doubleday didn’t invent baseball, and he didn’t do it in Cooperstown in 1839, Buzzkillers. Once again, a second- or third-hand story created a persistent myth. It was Alexander Cartwright in Manhattan in 1845. The Baseball Hall of Fame is still a great place to visit and I hope to run into you there sometime, Buzzkillers! neither hosts nor alters podcast files. All content © its respective owners.
