On this day, in 1892, the first true basketball game was played.
Doctor James Naismith invented the game for the YMCA to be played during the winter months in Springfield, Massachusetts.
The first game had nine players on each side and used a soccer ball and peach baskets for equipment. The game was thirty minutes long and ended with a score of 1-0. The lone basket was scored by William Chase from twenty-five feet. Originally, Naismith wrote thirteen rules and most of them are still in place today!
