The US baseball team didn't make the 2004 games so some countries had to have teams...?

I definitely see baseball as being a world sport - Japan, Columbia, Cuba, all the Latin American countries... Didn't Australia field a competitive team, if not a medal winner, when they hosted?

i could see dropping softball, and i guess if you drop softball you have to drop baseball because of the gender issues.

so thats a little sad

True, but Greece was populated with Greek-Americans and only qualified by being the host country.
