Baseball was developed from a British game called Rounders. which inactive small children were encouraged to take up. A variation of rounders in America, called \"town ball,\" was played until 1845, when Alexander Cartwright of Hoboken, N.J., started creating a variation of town ball with different rules. This is what came to be known as Baseball. Cartwright formed the first baseball team, the New York Knickerbockers, who had to play their first game against a cricket team.

An early form of baseball was being played in England by the mid-eighteenth century. This game and the related game of rounders were brought by British and Irish immigrants to North America, where the modern version of baseball developed. By the late nineteenth century, baseball was widely recognized as the national sport of the United States. The game is sometimes referred to as hardball in contrast to the derivative game of softball
