We are now a week into baseball season, that magical point of the year where the weather becomes nicer, the scent of fresh-cut grass and ballpark hotdogs fill the air, and bootleg mascots trade punches with bar patrons. You know, the classic American traditions.

As baseball fans, we can all feel a bit more comfort in knowing that, somewhere, Abner Doubleday is smiling down on all of us, pleased with what his (alleged) invention has morphed into. [Deadspin]
