         Where was softball created :  Softball was created Thanksgiving Day 1887-at a Harvard/ Yale football game.

       This happened when a fan threw a boxing glove at another fan and the fan hit the boxing glove with a broom handle.

 That was the start of softball. The Farragut boat club saw all this commotion then devised its own set of rules. George Hancock was the head of the softball committee and was mainly the rule maker .Several years later they changed  the rlues- that happened many times before they settled on the a set of rules in 2015.

 

 

          How big was the first softball :

The first softball  was 16 inches  but then changed it to a 12 inch ball . They also made 11 and 10 inch  balls because some people have smaller hands -  but some people still use the 16 inch ball for a game called cabbage ball. I don't know how to play cabbage ball but   I do wonder how to play cabbage ball it kind of seems interesting to play and if I ever get a chance I will try to learn how how to play cabbage ball.
