Abner Doubleday was a career Army officer and a General during the Civil War. He is widely considered the inventor of the game of baseball. This is most likely a myth, as many baseball yarns are, never-the-less he is woven into the fabric of the baseball story. The bat design is modeled after the Civil War era insignia for the rank of Major General.
