Not only do I need to be ready for what comes off the bat, I need to be ready for who gets the ball and who will throw it to me. I need to be ready for teamwork. From wearing a jersey that was too big for me when I was a little girl, to wearing sliding shorts, softball has always had an impact on my life. From having to bat off the tee to get a hit, to hitting a homerun during the first game of the season my senior year, I have loved the sport of softball. Softball has t

The first answer to pop into your head is probably “Well, it’s too cold in the winter to be playing an outside sport.” Think about it for a second.

    1738 words - 7 pages

    Softball was invented on Thanksgiving Day in 1887 in Chicago, IL. It all began while a bunch of Yale and Harvard alumni anxiously awaited the results of the Harvard-Yale football game. When they heard that Yale had defeated Harvard, one Yale supporter picked up an old boxing glove and threw it at a nearby Harvard alumnus, who promptly tried to hit it back with a stick. This gave George Hancock, a reporter for the Chicago Board of Trade, an idea. He suggested a game of indoor baseball. Using what was available, he tied together the laces of the boxing glove for a ball. Using a piece of chalk, H
