Baseball History

On February 2, 1876, the National League of Professional Baseball Clubs, which comes to be more commonly known as the National League (NL), is formed. The American League (AL) was established in 1901 and in 1903, the first World Series was held.

After a recent experience with Trivia Pursuit questions, it occurred to me that I need to brush up on my sports and history knowledge.

Of course, fills in that gap for me quite nicely, which is where the above facts were found.

I'm off to do more research...
