Early baseball
The Spread of baseball project is an effort to document how the game of baseball spread from the New York City area in the mid-19th century to other areas. The Knickerbocker Rules, codified in 1845, gave clubs a set of common rules by which to play, and led to an increase in the game's popularity in the years before the Civil War. SABR's Origins Committee has documented thousands of pre-professional games, including the first known games in each state and country.
