Why is baseball leaving the Olympic games?

Asked by Wiki User

Baseball is an Olympic event, the first game is Aug. 13. This is the last year for softball and baseball unless the Olympic committee makes a change, they voted to drop it after this year. Some think that the committee thinks baseball is so heavily dominated by the US, they want to drop it and that the committee thinks softball is women's baseball so they should drop it also.

Baseball became an official sport at the 1992 Summer Olympics, with the familiar eight team tournament. Players were required to be amateurs. The tournament consisted of a round-robin, in which teams played each of the other teams, followed by semifinals and finals. The format of the competition has remained the same since then, with the only major change being that starting in 2000 players were not required to be amateurs.
