Softball Back in the Games, One year for now
OK the great news is softball and of course baseball are back in the games. A few things stood out listening to the meeting.
1. Those, and there were few, that opposed it tried to make the case that if MLB did not agree to stop games during the Olympics "We would not have the best players in the world." My issue here is that assume all those players would "Choose" to go in the first place. Who is the IOC to say they players must go?
2. I am less and less convinced partnering with baseball was a good idea. Softball should stand on its own for numerous reasons. The first is it requires smaller rosters. Second, it is a chance to advance a female sport and develop the game in other countries. There are more reasons but those are good start.
