Date of Game Friday, May 30, 1919
Location Modlin, Poland

Baseball made its Polish debut on 30 May 1919 in a town near Warsaw called Modlin, according to a 2002 article in the Warsaw Voice. This matchup probably featured American or Canadian military personnel competing in a post-World War I contest. The occurrence raised little attention. . . . Poland played its own traditional bat-and-ball game . . . dating back centuries, and, by the 1920s the game of palant had a popular following."
