Important Games of the 19th Century – America’s Game #4

Welcome back to America’s Game, a special edition of Snapshots all about baseball! In this episode, we take a look at two of the most important games played in the 19th century. The first is a game that took place in Trenton, New Jersey with the Cuban Giants vs the Red Stockings. This was the first time a black baseball team beat an American Association team. This was a massive milestone for baseball and a landmark that paved a path for some of the greatest players in the sport. The second is when the White Stockings and the All-Americans faced off at the Pyramids of Giza. A 3,000-year-old baseball field and a first for the sport.
