BASEBALL COULD STRIKE OUT AFTER ATLANTA
Published February 21, 1996
Baseball could be out of the Olympics after this summer if the IOC can't find a way to have MLB players participate in the Sydney Games in 2000, according to the BOSTON GLOBE. USA Baseball Head Dick Case: "If we don't get the pros like they do in basketball, we have a chance of going down." Case noted Sydney is not "hot to trot" about baseball as they still have to build a stadium. The major problem for MLB is that the 2000 Games will take place in September, during pennant races (John Powers, BOSTON GLOBE, 2/18).
