Because Joe Dirt made a softball when he found it outside his house and he thought it was a softball but it was not it was just a big rolling turd!!
Ball is hard on outside,but the core is soft,not allowing it to travel as far and fast as a baseball,hence the name Softball.
A standard softball has cork for the very center and then there is a layer of 'string' like materials outside the cork. The very outside is covered with a thick layer of leather.
Softball gloves are made the same way baseball gloves are. Companies like Akadema make both softball and baseball gloves. See video below on how gloves are made. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KcGiBodC-Mo

Football, Baseball, Soccer,and Softball are the main ones
A baseball is smaller than a softball, and a softball is made of softer material (hence the name). Pro baseball players get on ESPN, become famous and make millions. Pro softball players get on ESPN2 at 1 in the morning and no one knows their names.
Softball and Baseball are not the same, but Softball is derived from baseball so they are in the same "family" if you will.Hope I helped.
