The background nature of the game of softball started in 1887 in Chicago, Illinois. Softball was a variant of baseball that was played on a bigger field and with a bigger ball.
softball started because they had baseball. the boys didn't like the girls playing with them. so the girls decided to create a game like baseball. the ball they decided to use was bigger and it was softer. they called it "softball". they just wanted a game that they could enjoy with out being "yelled" at by the boys. it ended up being a more orginized game. that is how softball started.
