16 random facts about baseball

This is an interesting infographic.  A lot of these bits of trivia I already knew, though some were new to me.  I do question the bit about Forbes Field — there seems to be a lot of debate over what actually qualifies for the title of “first field” in America.  First stadium might have been more accurate phrasing, though that’s probably debatable, too.

    Interesting, but the NL was founded in 1876, not 1897, Wonder what they’re thinking of in 1897.

    Fun Forbes Field fact–the center field fence was so far away (457′ to dead center, to be exact) that they stored the batting cage on the field out there during games.
