Potential stay of execution for Olympic softball and baseball

In this press release from the National Fast Pitches Coaches Association, the International Softball Federation will get a hearing before the International Olympic Committee next week in Italy.

Baseball's Olympic status will also be reviewed, but I haven't found much information (or any) about it.

While the International Baseball Federation has its headquarters in Lausanne, Switzerland, the International Softball Federation is headquartered in Plant City, Florida in a part of town where satellites fear to go.

I'm not just being flippant here, but I'd much rather see Olympics stickball and/or wiffleball than softball.

Did you know Plant City, FL is the Winter Strawberry Capital of The World? Me neither.

Softball would have fared better in the Olympics if somebody other than the U.S. won. When I watched some of the games from Athens, it was clear that the other teams just didn't have a chance.
