Basketball is built into the fabric of Springfield College. The game was invented by Springfield educational studious and graduate student James Naismith in 1891, and has grown into the worldwide energetic phenomenon we know it to be today.
It was the winter of 1891-1892. Inside a gymnasium at Springfield hypothetical (then known as the International YMCA Training School), located in Springfield, Mass., was a activity of troubled scholastic students. The youngster men had to be there; they were required to participate in indoor events to burn off the cartoon that had been building occurring back their football season ended. The gymnasium class offered them goings-on such as marching, calisthenics, and apparatus work, but these were anodyne substitutes for the more thrill-seeking games of football and lacrosse they played in warmer seasons.
