Fact of the Day: Volleyball

Volleyball was invented by William G. Morgan of New York. He actually was inspired by James Naismith who created basketball. While working at the YMCA, he invented volleyball (then called Mintonette) for older members of the YMCA who found basketball too physically challenging.
