In 1844 the 1st sporting event of any kind took place in New York City. It was a cricket match between USA & Canada. That event marked the 1st time young men from different countries battled on a playing field instead of a battlefield, a momentous accomplishment that is not celebrated anywhere in the world bizarrely. To commemorate the occasion American College Cricket started a USA vs Canada Series in 2015 where some of the best college players from Canada & America compete vs each other.
