Live All You Can: Alexander Joy Cartwright and the Invention of Modern Baseball
After about two decades of controversy, invention of America 's "national game" of baseball was attributed to Abner Doubleday by the Mills Commission — Some baseball historians promptly cried foul and others joined throughout the 20th century. New York City librarian Robert W.
Henderson documented Cartwright's contributions to baseball in his book Bat, Ball, and Bishop , which Congress cited in recognizing Cartwright as the inventor of the modern game.
