The Commissioner Weighs In

From what I understand, the decision by the International
Olympic Committee to eliminate baseball and softball was most likely
prompted by two problems with American baseball. (Softball, it seems,
was pretty much an innocent bystander.)

What were the problems? First,
the world’s best players were kept out of the Olympics because Major
League Baseball barred its players from competing in the Games. Second,
professional baseball’s antidoping program is below Olympic standards.
