IOC cuts baseball, softball from 2012 Games

Baseball and softball weren't big hits among International Olympic Committee members. Both American-invented sports were dropped today from the program for the 2012 Olympics in London -- the first events cut from the Summer Games in 69 years. The IOC couldn't immediately agree on their replacements. Each of the 28 existing sports was put to a secret vote by the IOC, and baseball and softball failed to receive a majority required to stay on the program. The other 26 sports made the cut.
But have no fear. Ping-Pong is still an Olympic "sport."
