Re: Basketball

I've heard many times that the first basketball basket was a peach basket made by the Barden Robson Basket Company in Penn Yan, NY. (My home town) Have others heard this, and does anybody know if this is factual? I would also be interested to know if any other areas make a similar claim.

I also have heard that for a time the ball was retrieved by means of pushing a stick up through a hole in the bottom of the basket. I can't imagine that a ladder would have been used for retrievel very long!
