IOC: Baseball must improve testing to be reinstated
SEOUL, South Korea -- Baseball was told Wednesday to toughen its fight against doping if it wants to be reinstated to the Olympics.
The International Olympic Committee last year voted to remove baseball and softball from the 2012 London Olympics. IOC president Jacques Rogge reiterated that the sports could apply in 2009 for a spot in the 2016 Summer Games.
In the meantime, Rogge said, baseball needs to take further steps in confronting performance-enhancing drugs.
