A Ball wouldn't be called a Baseball until the game of baseball was created. The earliest baseballs were made in or around 1840-1850 by local craftsman, farmers, and seamstress. They used materials that were readily available. Some time around1876, Albert G. Spalding and his brother, J. Walter Spalding, obtained the right to produce the official National League baseball, which they would continue to produce for the next 100 years.

The American League, formally the American League of Professional Baseball Clubs combined with the National league in 1901 to form Major League Baseball. Alfred James Reach, owner of The Reach sporting Goods company, sold his company to Spalding in 1889. Spalding continued to use the Reach label produced American League baseballs beginning in 1901.
