Best Answer

The first known ball game was first played over 3500 years ago in Mesoamerica (Central America). It was a brutal sport where the losers lost their lives and the winners were showered with all sorts of riches.

It was more than a sport though; it was more a way of life, an extension of their religion.

There is an excellent website that covers all sorts of details on what is called the Mesoamerican Ballgame. It covers everything from the records left behind by the people who played it, to how the game was actually played and why.
