"Baseball's introduction to the country came a year after Czechoslovakia achieved independence in 1919. The Czech's original baseball missionary was named Joe First [certainly never a player to be named later] and he offered the locals in the town of Pilsen introductory courses in a number of sports, including baseball, basketball, and archery . . . ." First continued his efforts . . . , setting up an exhibition game in Pilsen between YMCA branches from Prague and Pilsen."

Josh Chetwynd, Baseball in Europe (McFarland, 2008), pages 173-174.
