Baseball is said to be America's pastime but softball, an
offspring of baseball, has become just as much an American
tradition. Since its humble beginnings in 1887, softball has
grown and become a major sport in towns and cities across the
United States, as well as throughout the world. It is a
sport for all ages, genders and nationalities. From slowpitch to fastpitch, from men's to women's, from young to old,
from competitive to noncompetitive there is a team, a league or a
tournament to fit just about anyone.
