Olympic Baseball …Looking good!
Those of you that track the status of our game on an international level may have heard about the positive news from the Association of Summer Olympic International Federation’s meeting in Switzerland this past week. The IOC President, Jacques Rogge’ spoke very favorably about the future of our game remaining in the Olympics. A an official vote will be held for all 28 sports in July 8 . A 51% approval from the IOC members will keep you in the Olympics. Since they are doing all the sports I would think there are a few out there that are on lot shakier ground than baseball. The Olympics must maintain a maximum of 28 sports, 301 medal events and 10,500 athletes.
If someone, gets the boot look for Rugby, Golf, Squash or roller sports to be added.
