An excerpt from "The Father of Baseball: A Biography of Henry Chadwick,"

"Henry Chadwick is the most important figure in nineteenth century baseball history. Though he never really played the game, except for a scrub match in 1848, Chadwick did more to make the game popular and scientific, and relavant than any other individual in that era. Born on October 5, 1824, in Exeter, England, Chadwick migrated with his father James Chadwick, a journalist and enlightenment figure, his mother Theresa, and his younger sister Rosa, to New York, in September of 1837."
