BASEBALL COOKIES/ Play Ball!



I love baseball … and I’m a devoted Nats fan. Leave a comment below with the name of your favorite team. 
In the meantime, did you know ….

The first official baseball team in America was the New York Knickerbockers and their hats were made of straw.

Organized baseball began in the mid-1800s and within a few years became America's favorite game.

The first official baseball game took place in 1845 in Hoboken, New Jersey.

The first pack of baseball cards was sold in 1868.

The first World Series occurred in 1903 and the Boston Americans beat the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Baseball's unofficial anthem "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" was written in 1908.

So popular in early 20th century, it was hard to get a ticket to any east coast baseball games.

The 1918 World Series began the tradition of playing the national anthem at baseball games.

The first All-Star Game occurred in 1933.

The first baseball radio broadcast was in 1921 and first televised baseball game was in 1939.

The first night major league game was in May, 1935.

There are 108 stitches on a baseball. The stitches were not always red but red & blue and red & black.

Today one baseball generally lasts through only about seven pitches before it is replaced.

The only time the World Series has not been played was during the 1994 players strike.

No major league baseball player has ever had the middle name of Xavier. My grand nephew may be the first!
