  • The original game of softball was played with a 16" ball soft enough that the fielders did not use gloves.
  • Softball is similar to baseball, except that pitchers throw the ball underhand, using a windmill motion, and games last seven innings instead of nine. It is also played on a smaller diamond.
  • Softball was named an Olympic sport for women in 1991, and made its debut as a medal event in Atlanta in 1996.
  • Today more than forty million people play softball each summer, making it the number one team participant sport in the United States.
