4 Beisbol in Panama Panama baseball's U.S. debut: Early 1900s. Backing Panamanian independence in 1903, also first year of the World Series, U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt crafted a treaty to build the canal and create a 10-mile wide Canal Zone of sovereign American territory surrounding the waterway. Those born here would be considered as native-born U.S. citizens. Construction began a year later and America's cultural stamp has been in the country ever since -- including baseball. America maintained ownership over the canal until "America's Pastime" became "Panama's Pastime." Panama baseball's U.S. debut: Early 1900s.
