Strike two and they're out

In Summer Olympic and baseball news...

There was a new vote for the reinstatement of baseball and softball to the program for the London games. The vote was allowed because no other sports had the requisite support to fill the holes left by those two sports. Sadly, neither won reinstatement, so London will not get the massive introduction to the sport of Baseball that I was hoping for, and the Summer Olympics will be two shorts shy of a maxed out docket.

There are no chances left for reinstatement for the London games. It'll still be contested in Beijing 2008, but the next chance beyond that will be the yet-unawarded 2016 games.
