Did you know…
… that today is First Softball Game Day? In 1887, the game of softball started on this day at the Farragut Boat Club in Chicago when Yale and Harvard Alumni wrapped up a boxing glove and started to hit the “ball” with a broomstick. Eventually the game was played outdoors. Trivia fans: In Chicago, the parks and school grounds were small so the ball had to be larger to stay in the park. Thus, the 16-inch diameter became the size of choice.
