This week’s photos feature women playing softball near the University Library and Memorial Gym. Softball developed out of indoor baseball, which was invented in Chicago in 1887.1 “Women’s fast-pitch softball became an official sport of the Summer in 1996 but was dropped in 2012. Still, that hasn’t deterred millions of enthusiasts in the U.S. and more than a hundred other countries from pursuing the sport.”2
Stay tuned for next week’s installment of Women’s Recreation Wednesday!
