Albert Spalding made it a point to play in Paris during his 1888-1889 tour. "The American [Spalding] could confidently point out that baseball was a game of the masses in the United States. Many of the players on Spalding's tour had come from modest means and cold serve as proof of the value baseball could have in democratizing sports in France. The Paris contest was held on 8 March 1889 at the Parc Aerostatique . . . ."
