Baseball is huge in the USA, Latin America, Japan, Taiwan, and Korea and played in most of the other major countries in the world. Baseball is in the top 5 most played and watched sports world wide; obviously falling well behind sports like basketball and soccer that are easy to play by yourself and require little monetary investment. That being said olympic baseball is awful and doesn't need to exist. We have the WBC now for the people who care about patriotism in sports.
