In December of 1891, Springfeild, Massachutes a man named Dr. James Naismith decided to invent a sport that would help condition athletes during cold months. He gathered two peach baskets and a soccer ball. The objective of the game was to shoot the soccer ball into the peach basket which was nailed to the lower railing of the gyms balcony. At first when the game was over and a team made the shot into the basket, they would call up the school janitor to come and remove the ball from the basket using a ladder, later they decided they would remove the bottom of the peach basket. When Dr. James Naismith was deciding what they should call the game, they asked him if he wanted to name it after himself, he answered with “We have a ball and a basket, why don’t we call it basketball.”
