Baseball is missing from the Olympics this summer, but the sport has a longer, richer history at the Olympic Games than you remember.
In case you haven’t noticed, there is a sporting event being held besides baseball’s dog days of August (hint: it’s happening in London). For a brief time, baseball was a part of it. I can understand if you didn’t pay attention to it, though, since only lesser players were involved in Olympic baseball while it was part of the program.
If you agreed with that last sentence, I kindly suggest that you reconsider your position.
