Well I mean they have the World baseball Classic so they can surely have Olympic Baseball.
Here is a wiki article on the whole baseball in the Olympics thing:

Well, since this thread is about the London games and not past or future games, we can only hope that maybe there will be enough interest to at least demonstrate it again in Rio de Janeiro. In the meantime, the US team had a disappointing finish in the men's team gymnastics, won by China. The pleasant surprise was that the hosts won their first medal in the sport since 1912, a bronze.
Let's hope our women do better tomorrow night.
Looking at the link Rick gave, our hopes will have to be for 2020. Golf and Rugby will return to the Games in Rio, though. It might have been interesting to see them have those sports in London, especially golf considering the history that sport has in Britain and the courses they could use there.

Phelps has obviously regressed since 2008. It would've been nearly impossible to hold up those performances at Beijing. What was once an unmatched butterfly stroke is now "only" good enough for second place. But it was good to see some of the remnants of the old Phelps in his untouchable 200 meter freestyle to break the record in number of medals won by an individual.
