If there’s a President of the United States to thank (or blame, depending on one’s perspective) for developments such as the proliferation of youth sports and the revelry of Super Bowl Sunday, it’s Theodore Roosevelt. During the Roosevelt administration (1901-1909), the first World Series took place, interscholastic sports began, basketball and tennis became organized sports, the high-profile Mills Commission created the “Doubleday Myth” and declared baseball America’s “National Pastime,” the NCAA formed, both bicycling and pedestrianism crazes took hold, and the United States hosted the Olympic Games, in 1904, for the first time. Come learn more about Roosevelt’s involvement in American sports!
