The Sport

It’s a lighter version of baseball. The origin of this sport goes back to 1887, in the United States, when George Hancock invented a way to practice baseball in indoor venues. In a short time, the modality went outside and, in the 1920s, it gained its current name. The sport is more widespread among women. Softball has the same basic rules of baseball. The main differences are the dimensions of the ball (bigger), the field (smaller), and the playing time (which goes down from nine to seven innings).
