softball will be back in the olympics in 2016?
Not anymore. Softball was played at the Olympics starting with the 1996 summer games. The IOC (International Olympic Committee) voted to drop both Softball and Baseball from the Olympic games starting in 2012. The Baseball and Softball Federations are trying to get their sports back into the Olympics starting in 2020.
saddly the year of 2008 they had the final fastpitch Olympics games for now there is a act going on to bring softball back into the Olympics.
Yes, it's played in the Olympics and in fact it's the only sport that doesn't have a boys division, it's only women softball. Unfortunately, a move was done to remove softball from the Olympic games starting in the 2012 Olympics. There have been efforts to help bring back softball.
softball and baseball. i think.
No, but the team is trying to get the sport back in to the 2016 Summer Olympics. They did not have enough votes for any baseball to be added as a sport or for a replacement sport
