Description

Baseball may hold the honorific of America's national pastime, but it is another sport invented and developed in the United States--basketball--that now rivals soccer as the world's most popular spectator and participant sport. This fact-filled brief history explores how "hoops" grew from its 1891 invention in Springfield, Massachusetts, as a winter training exercise for athletes of other sports to the world's favorite game.show more
