Basketball
Basketball is one of few sports with a known birthday. On December 1, 1891, in Springfield, Massachusetts, James Naismith hung two half-bushel peach baskets at the opposite ends of a gymnasium and out-lined 13 rules based on five principles to his students at the YMCA, which later became Springfield College. Naismith (1861-1939) was a physical education teacher who was seeking a team sport with limited physical contact and material but a lot of running, jumping, shooting, and the hand-eye coordination required in handling a ball.

You need these materials because if you didn\'t have them you might sprain your ankles and playing in pants is hard because shorts are easier to move in. Playing in a long sleeve shirt is uncomfortable.

The rules to the game determine a lot in the game cause if there was not rules then there would be a lot of people saying that you are cheating.
