Civil War Baseball Factoids: Did you know?
Ty Cobb’s grandfather fought in the Civil War and died at Fredericksburg. He fought with a baseball bat rather than a sword.
Abner Doubleday did not invent baseball, only the hit where the batter runs to second base.
If General George Gordon Meade had lived into the 20th century, he would have been the first commissioner of baseball, which would have disappointed Lincoln and annoyed both Sickles and Grant.
