If you're a fan of baseball or softball and a fan of the Olympics, and you've been wanting to combine those two passions since Beijing in 2008, have we got news for you!
Monday the International Olympics Committee voted in Monaco to allow the possibility of baseball and softball to return to the sporting lineup of the 2020 Olympics by getting rid of the previous 28-sport limit.
The IOC cut the two sports in 2005 by a narrow margin — baseball missing the cut by three votes and softball by one. That vote effectively knocked the sports out of the 2012 and upcoming 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio. (Video via BBC)
