Bad news for some baseball and softball fans. The International Olympic Committee has voted to drop the two sports from the 2012 Olympics. Amongst the factors being blamed are the problems the US major leagues are having with doping, and that baseball supposedly isn't popular enough in much of the world. The latter is rather amusing given some of the other sports that are in the Olympics, and for that matter there being a Winter Olympics when large chunks of the planet don't have any sort of winter sports tradition because they have no winter.
