a simple other name for a softball diamond is a feild
Well actually another name for baseball is hardball which are played by males. Softball is a name for what girls play. The name of the sport was actually named by the ball. Softball, a ball that is soft. They kept the sport simple.
There are a number of associations in softball but I will presume you are asking about ASA (amateur softball association).
They named it softball because the game of softball was derived from baseball. The baseball had a hard core whereas the softball has a soft core, so they named it softball. Although the ball is not softball the core of the ball is soft.
