The game of softball was invented in Chicago in 1887 by George Hancock. The idea for the ball came from an old boxing glove.
George Hancock developed and published the standard rules for softball in 1889. He invented the game in 1887, and the first softball game was indoors.

George Hancock invented softball. It grew until rules were developed and now we have the ISF (International Softball Federation) as international governing body to take care of the sport
No, a standard baseball is smaller than a standard softball.
What are some rules of softball that have changed in the past 50 years?

There are none.
Softball was invented in 1887. There probably isn't a definite date on when the first regulation was created but (i know it is common sense to run from home to first but) having to run a certain direction on the bases is a rule (technically) so the first rules would have had to have been created the day softball was invented, but those said rules are modified every year to ensure our safety.

they are the same as in baseball
There are 7 innings in softball there can be tie breakers, but there are run rules as well.
NCAA rules for redshirting in softball are basically the same as other sports. An academic sophomore can be considered an athletic freshman.
The rules aren't that different actually. Softball and baseball are nearly the same sport, with just a few minor differences.
