Although Alexander Cartwright (New York) published the first list of rules in 1845, an early form of baseball was played in Beachville, Ontario, in 1838. Since that moment, baseball has grown in popularity in Canada and has been heralded as Canada’s unofficial summer sport.

Baseball made its debut at the first ever Canada Summer Games in 1969, which took place in Halifax-Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.
