INVINCIBLE: Baseball in Tacoma

Special | 56m 29s Video has closed captioning.

In the mid-nineteenth century, baseball spread across the country and became one of America's favorite past-times. Amateur teams gave businessmen and laborers a way to exercise and relieve the stresses of work. Tacoma's first baseball team, The Invincibles, took the field in August 1874. They lasted only twelve days, but baseball fever had come to town and has been alive ever since.
