What's the difference between softball and baseball?

First of all, softball pitching is done underhand and baseball is overhand that's the biggest and most obvious difference. But some people might think there the same length but they are not. Softball pitching is done between 35-45 feet. Baseball is 60 feet and 6 inches. Softball bases are closer than baseball bases. Softball bases are 60ft, unlike baseball, bases are 90ft.

The history of softball?

Most people think that it came because of baseball but actually came out because of football. The first softball game was played on Thanksgiving in 1887. George Hancock was the one invented softball in 1887. The softball game happened as a joke at a Harvard football game but then they made rules and it became serious. Softball was originally made for boys but became I girls. There are two different types of softball fast pitch and slow pitch.
