FUN FACTS: The earliest known softball game was played at the Farragut Boat Club in Chicago on Thanksgiving Day, 1887 – a group of Harvard and Yale alumnus used a tightened boxing glove as a ball and broomstick as a bat and fielded the ball barehanded. The rules surrounding a 16″ ball and shorter bat were finalized the following week and are still observed in and around Chicago.
