The game of softball was invented in Chicago in 1887 by George Hancock. The idea for the ball came from an old boxing glove.
A baseball outfielder glove is usually 12 1/2 to 12 3/4 inches from the tip of the index finger to the heel of the glove. A softball outfielder glove is usually 13 1/2 to 14 inches from the tip of the index finger to the heel of the glove. Since a softball is larger than a baseball, a softball glove will be larger than a baseball glove. However, this doesn't mean that you can't use a baseball glove for playing softball. It just means that you will have less margin of error when catching the softball because of the smaller pocket a baseball glove has.
No, the glove is intended for baseball, by fielders and pitchers who want a little longer glove for scooping up balls. It can be used for softball, bit does not have a larger pocket that would make a strictly softball glove better.
Sure. A softball glove is made of the same materials that a baseball glove is made of (high grade leather). They need time to be broken in. Oiling the glove will help with this process.

Invented? Well, softball is simply the female version of baseball. No huge difference. Just the pitchers, the glove, and the ball and the obvious, it's a girls sport. Apparently, who ever invented or developed softball, thought females shouldn't be allowed to play with males, so established a new sport. More intense and difficult in certain cases. I hope this answers your question
The use of a softball glove is so it does not hurt your hand when someone throws it and it is also used for an aim so you do not have to aim with your hand. ( That would look silly.)
Depends on your size of hand. My batting glove is a Medium && i have a 13"-14" glove
They called softball mushball, because the first softball game was played with a "mushy" taped up boxing glove.
You can either buy glove conditioner or use something like shaving creme. Lather the glove with the oil and then place a softball in the pocket of the glove and use a rubber band to hold the ball in place. Then you can do pretty much anything to work in the glove like sticking it under the leg of a sofa or use the glove as a base during sliding practice.
