Skill 2
Determine The Organization Of Ideas
Determine the main idea of each
paragraph.
\ue000

If asked who invented the game of baseball, most
Americans would probably reply that it was Abner
Doubleday. At the beginning of this century, there was
some disagreement over how the game of baseball had
actually originated, so sporting-goods manufacturer
Spaulding inaugurated a commission to research the
question. In 1908 a report was published by the
commission in which Abner Doubleday, a U.S. Army officer
from Cooperstown, New York, was given a credit for the
invention of the game. The National Baseball Hall of Fame
was established in Cooperstown in honor of Doubleday.

Today, most sports historians are in agreement that
Doubleday really did not have much to do with the
development of baseball. Instead, baseball seems to be a
close relation to the English game of rounders and
probably has English rather than American roots.
