The ISF urges all softball lovers to respond:

SOFTBALL SUPPORTERS URGED TO SPEAK OUT TO IOC

2002-08-29

The International Softball Federation (ISF) issued a response to the
recommendation to eliminate softball - along with two other sports - from
the
2008 Olympics in Beijing.  The recommendation came from the International
Olympic Committee's (IOC) Program Commission.

Part of the call to action in the ISF's comments is a worldwide campaign by
softball supporters to voice their displeasure of this recommendation and
their
support of the game - especially at the Olympic level - to the IOC.  The
ISF is
pointing athletes, coaches, umpires, fans, and anyone with a connection to
softball to www.olympic.org.  Click on Public Suggestions and then complete
the
electronic forms that will enable the comments to be sent to the IOC.

The ISF thanks everyone around the world for their continued support of
softball, as well as their role in this campaign.
