GREAT BASKETBALL MOMENTS: FIRST POINT IN HISTORY - 1891

( Para la Versión No Literal en Español: Ver a Continuación de la Fotografía! )

On December 21, 1891 in the YMCA gym in Springfield, Massachusetts, USA, Naismith tried his game out on the18 students of his class. He had 2 teams of 9 and his instructions to the games was simply " throw the ball into the basket".
The game was very crowded because of the 9 players to a side instead of the usual 5 as it is now. Another reason was because the gymnasium was only 35 feet by 50 feet (A regulation court is 50 feet by 94 feet).

There was very little teamwork or co-operation in that game because whenever a player got the ball all the other players surrounded him. A student named William Chase (see photograph) scored the only basket of the game.

Now that Naismith had a game for his students he needed a name for it.
One of the students suggested the name "Naismith Ball" but Naismith rejected that suggestion and named the game "Basketball".

GRANDES MOMENTOS DEL BALONCESTO:
EL PRIMER PUNTO EN LA HISTORIA - 1891


Un 21 de Diciembre, 1891 en el YMCA gym en Springfield, Massachusetts, USA, William R. Chase, fue el autor de la primera canasta de la historia. A un balón suelto en la mitad del gimnasio Chase reaccionó con un gancho que acarició el techo del gimnasio y terminó alojado en el cesto.

Tras recogerlo del fondo, el señor Stebbins bajó de la escalera y se dirigió a devolvérselo a Naismith, a quien todos quedaron mirando sin saber qué hacer después de aquello.

Un tanto aturdido por la prueba más explícita de su creación, al profesor sólo se le ocurrió devolver el balón al equipo contrario, cuyos miembros trataron de imitar el gesto técnico de Chase, como si éste hubiera dado con la clave de la canasta.

Ninguno más lo logró.
