Recently a short list of sports to be considered for the 2020 Olympics was released. Softball was on it. Softball has been removed from the sports for the 2012 and 2016 olympic games. Please read here as to why softball doesn't have a great chance of coming back to the olympics: http://espn.go.com/espnw/mobile/touch/news-opinion/6740436/softball-long-road-2020
Softball is a very popular sport in my town during the summer. A lot of
people play recreational league for fun. My high school and the other high
schools around mine have very competitive softball teams.
This is my 7th year playing. I'm going into my freshman year of high school
and I will play for my school team, I can't wait.
When I go to college, I plan on playing softball there.
I also want to represent the USA softball team in the olympics someday
I know I'm not the only teenage girl who dreams of going to the olympics. I
know that many other teenage softball players dream of someday
representing their country in the olympics.
We can't fufil our dreams without the help of others. It doesn't matter who
they may be. Our family, our team mates, softball lovers, ex-olympians,
even just somebody who loves to watch the olympic games.
I hope to get a lot of signatures on this which may help convince the IOC
that softball is worth it.
Even if softball doesn't get put in the 2020 games, when I would be
22, I could still have a chance of playing in the 2024 or 2028 games.
I feel so bad for the ladies who had the dream of playing softball in the
olympics, but can't because the years that they would have been a good
age, 2012 or 2016, don't have softball.
Thanks for taking your time to read this.
Please help out softball players.
Every signature counts.
