Weird Sports Facts Saturday

I feel like the sports facts lately haven’t been that strange/weird/odd so I might have to change the name of this post or get a little weirder.  More details on this later… Enjoy!

Native Americans used Lacrosse to train for wars.  Which may make it the oldest sport in our country.

Tennis fact: The score “love” (zero) allegedly derives from the French “oeuf” which means egg.

Identifying baseball players by number started w/ the Yankees in 1929.  The National League adopted it in 1933.
