Baseball Softball
Baseball Softball

What are your thoughts about Softball & Baseball being cut from the Olympics? I heard the reason is because ?

there is no stars playing on the baseball teams like it is in Basketball. Also that because the USA teams dominate in softball and baseball. I don't think that professional players should play for the olympics. What is your take on it?
Well on the news they said that the US was undefeated in the Olympics in both sports. MLB can't suspend games for the Olympics, the players are under contract. If one of them were injured that would be a breach of contract for many players.

I think the main reason is that for a Sport to be in the Olympics, it has to be a world sport. Outside of the US and perhaps smaller South American countries and Japan, not many countries have a big baseball or softball following.

I'm from Australia and I personally love baseball, I played for 5 or so years as a kid, but the sport here is pretty small. We used to have a national league but that collapsed because most people prefer Aussie Rules Football, Rugby, Cricket and Soccer here.

I suppose that when you compare it to sports like swimming, track and field, soccer, gymnastics etc, it doesn't really have the same worldwide appeal. I don't think it has anything to do with the US teams dominating the competition, several countries are up there with them - Japan and Australia for instance in the softball. If we were going to exclude sports based on countries doing well in them, swimming would have been eliminated from the program long ago (Australia hitsorically tends to dominate...although only in the women's this year because of Phelps!), as would have basketball (ie; US has only ever lost at 1 Olympics..)
