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.

How did America not qualify?
I didn't even realise we had a team, let alone one who had medal potential. I dont think even the media mentioned it. Or maybe they did because it was something to gloat over.
It seems to be viewed as a sport you guys excel at, and are the main players of.

i think Australia ended up with the silver medal in Athens

the reason USA didnt qualify is because the qualifying process was a joke. They went 3-1 in qualifications, but for some reason because they lost one game that means they didn't make it. Pretty stupid if you ask me.

Was it like that for all teams? In any sport, needing a clean sweep on all events or matches is a joke.
