Softball. A Misnomer.

Have you ever wondered why they call it a softball? Have you ever been on the receiving end of one?

I have. And I can tell you that it most certainly was not soft.

I mean, I guess in comparison to a baseball it may be soft….er. But still.

A pillow? Soft. A puppy? Soft. A baby? Soft. My abs? Soft.

A softball, not so much.

Also, if you say the word “soft” enough times it starts to sound really weird.

Do you ever wonder how some things got their names? Leave a comment below!
