Not the first, but certainly the reigning king of the Tabletop Baseball genre, Strat-o-Matic Baseball was designed by Hal Richman and first published in 1961.

Most praised for the meticulous attention to detail and commitment to probing statistical research required to produce its player cards (the gameco. typically touts "1000 hours" of research per historical season), Strat-o-Matic has reached iconic status in the tabletop sports genre.

2. Board Game: APBA Pro Baseball [Average Rating:6.89 Overall Rank:4032]

APBA Baseball is a Card & Dice baseball simulation board game. It is a “basic” game in that many of the more advanced aspects of baseball strategy (lefty/righty matchups, baserunning/outfielder throwing arms, to name two) are left out of the game. Each Major League Baseball player is represented with his own batting card. The results on the cards should be representative of the player’s real life statistics over the course of a season.

APBA's design is based around the game engine for a previously-forgotten game called “National Pastime.” APBA Baseball was first released in 1951, pre-dating Strat-O-Matic’s first release by 9 years.
