I want to give you an idea about baseball. Baseball was invented before 1000 of years in Egypt. Then England discovered this game too and they wrote books about the rules, teams and the material. Those books came to the United States of America and since the 18. Century baseball is the national and popular sport in America. In year 1845 Alexander Cartwright wrote a book with rules and at since this time the rules are the same in the whole world. So Cartwright has the name “ Father of baseball”! Today baseball is popular in Japanese, Germany and Austria.
The other lands learned baseball from America because in the Second World War american soldiers played it in their free time.
