That really sucks...............I can see why though, The Americans seem to win baseball and softball ALOT in the olympics and the other countries are trying to lower our medal count
Actually, the US won gold in 2000 and bronze in 1996, but nothing in 2004 or 1992. And we haven't won a world title since the '70s (Cuba has that on lockdown).
This really blows, I'm a big proponent of a strong international baseball system like FIFA, and taking baseball out of the Olympics is a step backwards.
I still remember the first time I ever heard of Ben Sheets and Ro Oswalt was in 2000 at the olympics.
