    I grew up near Beachville, Ontario, Canada and saw this sign everyday.....I'm a bit skeptical if this is true but I've always been too lazy to really look into it. could America's past time have started in Canada?

    i don't think historians have ever been able to pin down the exact origins of baseball. It adds to the mystique of the game imo.

    $7 for a pair of shoes in 1889, seems a little pricey for a time when most wage earners were lucky to make $500 in a year.
