16″ Softball is Chicago. It was created here with a broom stick and a wrapped up boxing glove. No equipment needed. Back in the 30’s, 12,000 spectators filled the stands to watch the game in neighborhoods on the South and North sides. The Hall of Fame is a wonderful collection of all this history and the history still to come. Uniforms worn in Championship games. Fungo bats and a timeline of how it all got started.
