About This Quiz
It's hard to tell nowadays when you compare softball to baseball, but there was a reason softball was invented back in 1887. The game was meant to be played indoors as a way to ensure you could still have some baseball fun even if the weather outside was moody af. As a result, the field of play shrank a little bit, as did the distance between the bases and, of course, the size of the ball changed. The ball also became softer to make it less of a destructive piece of equipment for indoor play. Then eventually we moved it all outdoors again, but the rules stayed the same.
These days, some dudes may look down on softball because it's not "real" baseball, but that's probably because they just haven't played the game before. It's not baseball in the way rugby isn't football. They're similar sports, but they're not the same and they're not supposed to be the same. What they are supposed to be is competitive and fun, and they definitely qualify as both. So if you spent some time playing in high school, why not tell us a bit about yourself and we bet we can guess exactly which sport you played! Take the quiz and see!
