Olympic Vote Draws Closer

Monumental Decision Right Around The Corner 

August is the month that matters most for Olympic Softball. This is the month that the short list of seven possible sports is slashed down to the final two to be presented to the IOC. Softball has been an olympic sport since 1996 but was cut from the program for the London Games in 2012. 
A six-member delegation, including former US Player Jessica Mendoza and current Australian Danielle Stewart, were in Switzerland to plead softball's case to the IOC. If Olympic Softball makes the cut, it along with a second sport will go head-to-head in a full vote by the IOC at their 121st session in Copenhagen to determine which one will be added to the roster of 26 sports for the 2016 games. Read more.
