Baseball Eliminated From Olympics After 2008

John Manuel -

Jacques Rogge finally got what he wanted: baseball and softball out of the Olympics. The International Olympic Committee, following the lead of its president, had secret-ballot voting on all 28 sports on the Olympic program Thursday, and baseball and softball were the only two that failed to receive the majority of votes needed to stay in the Games. So the 2008 Beijing Olympics will likely be the last Games with baseball and softball for the foreseeable future.
