About Softball

Softball is played between two teams on a large field, with nine players from one team on the field at a time. Slow-pitch softball is played with ten fielders. The field is usually composed of a dirt or brick-dust infield that contains the quadrilateral shape and running areas, of a diamond, and a grass outfield. However, the field can consist of other solid and dry surfaces such as artificial turf or asphalt.

History of Softball

Softball was created by George Hancock in Chicago in 1887. The game originated as an indoor variation of baseball and was eventually converted to an outdoor game. The popularity of softball has grown considerably, both at the recreational and competitive levels. In fact, not only is women’s fast pitch softball a popular high school and college sport, it was recognized as an Olympic sport in 1996.

"As softball continues to develop and grow in the hearts and minds of the nation, we face new challenges every single day. There is a need for structuring and uniting our people together so we can strengthen the bond Softball is helping us create among our people. We must demonstrate that Softball is a global phenomenon that involves millions of athletes, coaches, families and fans worldwide."
Asif Azeem
General Secretary, Pakistan Softball Federation
“Softball needs to be equally supported by the government and private sponsors. This is essential to provide a boost to the young players who ought not only to excel in the game itself but should also be financially empowered, as the young players are being supported by the funds contributed by the members of the association and to provide them support and the proper equipment that they deserve.”
Saleem Rajput
President, Sindh Softball Association
'With the gradual passage of time, softball has made a special place in the hearts of many players and coaches all over Pakistan. It is the drive of these individuals that allows us to give it our all and strive to elevate softball to the heights of cricket in our fair country. One day, the slogan of the SSA "One Team, One Dream" shall be synonymous all over Pakistan and every child will play it just as well as they'd play any other sport, that is my dream.'
Muhammad Zeeshan Merchant
General Secretary, Sindh Softball Association
