The original softball was a rolled-up boxing glove. The sport was invented in 1887 in Chicago as an indoor game. At various times it was called indoor baseball, mush ball, playground, softbund ball, kitten ball, and because it was also played by women, ladies' baseball. The name softball was given to the game in 1926.
The first women’s team was formed in 1895 in Chicago’s West Division High School in the United States. There was no coached competition, and they were not considered comparable to men. They used large, 17-inch softballs without gloves or catcher’s masks. The bases were sand bags set 27 feet apart while the pitching mound was only 22 feet away from home plate.
The women’s game utilized nine players, with two at shortstop and two in the outfield. More of a social sport, women’s teams didn't emerged until the the late nineteenth century.
