1887, George Hancock, a reporter for Chicago Board of Trade, invented softball.
He invented the game as a form of indoor baseball on a cold winter day
inside the warm Farragut Boat Club.
Softball is a variant of baseball
and a popular participant sport, particularly in the United States. It
is generally agreed that softball developed from a game called indoor baseball,
first played in Chicago.
