Baseball's Reinstatement Plan

After months of silence, the International Baseball Federation has outlined its plan for getting back on the Olympic programme. It sounds an awful lot like softball's plan, actually, with a few key differences:

  • Softball was eliminated by one vote. Baseball was cut 54-50, which means that they have to convince three delegates to flip.
  • Nobody's claiming that delegates voted against baseball because they were confused.
  • The USOC, which is putting all of its weight behind softball's reinstatement, will definitely not be making the case for baseball.
