History of Softball

  • The game of softball originated in Chicago on Thanksgiving Day, 1887. A group of 20 young men gathered in a gymnasium to hear the outcome of the Harvard-Yale football game. After the game, one of the men picked up a stray boxing glove and threw it at someone, who proceeded by hitting it with a pole. George Hancock, who is considered the inventor of softball shouted, “Let’s play ball!”
