Background[edit | edit source]
Baseball was invented on Earth around the 18th century and was a popular sport, notably in the United States, between the 19th and 21st centuries. After that, its popularity declined to a niche sport.
Some popularity was maintained into the 24th century with at least one team present on Cestus III (the Pike City Pioneers). Benjamin Sisko was also a major fan of the game and in 2375 he got the crew of Deep Space 9 to play a game against the crew of the U.S.S. T'Kumbra. (If Wishes Were Horses, Take Me Out to the Holosuite)
Following this, Rom, who really enjoyed the game, talked about it for weeks and put a huge sum of money into a new interstellar baseball league. He even brought a professional team, the Ferenginar Liquidators, however Quark deems them to be no good, citing the fact that they were beaten by the Caitian Claws 18-4 even though they were cheating. Quark discusses this after finding baseball paraphernalia in T'Ket's trophy room. ( “Quark's Lucky Seven”)
In 2389 Jean-Luc Picard helped draft a peace treaty between Klingon Empire and the Gorn Hegemony that was conditional on the Gorn losing a game of baseball against the Pike City Pioneers. (Path to 2409)
