Description <p>Dr. Caleb Guyer Kelly (d. 1960), <p>Dr. Caleb Guyer Kelly (d. 1960), a Methodist missionary, former Baltimore City College ballplayer, and friend of Ned Hanlon, organized a baseball league in Tunis, Tunisia (then a French colony) in 1921. This eventually led to the "ligue Tunisienne de Baseball." Kelly boasted of forming 107 teams in Tunisia, Libya, Algeria and Morocco (all French or Italian colonies at the time)  in North Africa, and was known as "the father of North African Baseball." In Algeria teams were formed in Algiers, the capitol, A. S. St. Eugene being (apparently) the first. In 1937 he invited the Pittsburgh Pirates to train in Tunis.</p> <p>See C. G.
