Some guy named Abner Graves (who murdered his wife), said Doubleday invented it at Cooperstown. But at that time, Doubleday was a cadet at WP. So there is no verifiable connection to baseball.   Doubleday never made any claims about it. The game actually came from your home country, where it was known as rounders.

Doubleday does hold a patent for the San Francisco cable car system, however.
