Abner Doubleday did not invent baseball. Publications about the game date as early as 1835, when Abner was just 16 years old. Further, though he is credited with inventing baseball in Cooperstown, New York, in 1839, it is known that he was enrolled at West Point from 1838 to 1842. At that time a West Point Cadet was not allowed to leave campus until his last year in school; thus it was impossible for him to visit Cooperstown before 1841.
