Random comment[edit]

Baseball and softball are not, as near as I can tell, amongst the favourites. The sports are viewed as high cost because they required special single use facilities be created that will likely have little use after the Olympics. Added to that, Major League Baseball has all but said they will not release their players and shut down the league during the Olympics. This pretty much seals the deal and means they won't get included. (Tennis, ice hockey and golf have I believe agreed to not have major tournaments conflict and allow their players to compete.) --LauraHale (talk) 01:14, 25 March 2012 (UTC)
