    Abner Doubleday is the mythical "inventor" of baseball. He served in the U.S. Army during the Mexican War and the Civil War. He is credited in some circles as one of the fathers of baseball, but that has long since been debunked. It does explain, however, why the Baseball Hall of Fame is in Cooperstown, NY (as in the first game was supposedly there).
