How much of a differnce does it make between throwing on a mound and throwing on flat ground?

Baseball developed over time, based on a few different games, including cricket.

As it developed, it went west with the settlers,. Given the amount of land needed to play a game, it was a natural fit with the open spaces that were perceived by them.

Variations of the game were played across what is now the US, including variations between the game as it was played in the cities and as it was played in more rural areas.

In the 1830's, Alexander Cartwright began to codify the rules, as they were being used in the variation know as city ball. These codified rules were soon adopted throughout the country, although to this day, there are still local variations depending on local conditions.

Baseball bears little resemblance now to any of it's sources. It's played today, among other places, in the US, Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Aruba, Nicaragua, Cuba, Venezuela, Colombia, Brazil, the Dominican Republic, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Australia, South Africa, the Netherlands, Italy,and Russia.

Which pitcher has the best Pickoff move?

I used to live on the road which turned into Main St. of Cooperstown, NY...the popular consensus is that it the first game was played in Cooperstown...however there's debate that the first game was actually played in a neighboring town called Fly Creek...I'm not sure weather there's conclusive evidence supporting those claims or not. But I always thought it was quite interesting. I've seen several instances where people almost came to blows over it. Cooperstown is a nice Americana looking town; but the people there are WEIRD. Living there almost killed my love for baseball. I'm glad I got out while I could.
