Best Answer

It was invented by Abner Doubleday in 1839 in NY.

It's a myth that Doubleday invented Baseball. Historians have largely disproved the story of Abner and baseball. There are published accounts of the game being played in Ontario Canada prior to this date. Sporting Life magazine published an account of a game in Beachville Ontario, Canada in 1838, a full year before Doubleday was supposed to have invented the game.

Variations of the game have been played for centuries in other countries.

But the man credited with being the "father of baseball" was Alexander Cartwright.
