The International BAseball Federation History
VI I n 1998, the XXXIII Baseball World Cup was hosted by Italy for the third time in twenty years (1978, 1988 and 1998). Once again, 16 teams took part, all of them emerging from continental qualifying tournaments in which over 50 countries participated.
I n 1999, the IBA came to an agreement with Major League Baseball USA and the Players Association to allow the participation of professional players up to AAA category in the qualifying tournaments for Sydney 2000. At the Pan-American Games held in Winnipeg, Canada, Baseball was the most popular sport in terms of both stadium and TV audiences.
I n the same year, at the Congress held in Sydney, Australia, the Federation decided to return to its roots and changed its name to the International BAseball Federation (IBAF).
W ith the inclusion of professional players, the 2000 Sydney Olympic Baseball Tournament was a tremendous success as 97.44 percent of capacity was occupied over an average of 32 games. For the first time, the Olympic gold medal went to the United States. Also highlighting the Sydney Baseball Tournament was the debut of the continent of Africa in Baseball Olympic history. The participation of all five continents exemplified the growth of Baseball internationally.
A record 81 countries attended the last IBAF Ordinary Congress in May 2001 at Lausanne, SUI. Aldo Notari was unanimously re-elected President, while the IBAF Executive Committee experienced changes in 10 of 14 positions with eight new members, two members changing positions within the Executive Committee and four members remaining in previous positions.

are the perfect representatives of what we do here at USA Baseball: Train future Olympians In the 17 years since the 1984 Olympic Games in Los Angeles, when legendary USC coach Rod Dedeaux, Mark McGwire and Will Clark, led Team USA to a silver medal at Dodger Stadium, there have been countless young men who have worn our Red, White and Blue uniform on the baseball diamond. Each and every one has represented our nation with great class and tremendous pride. Some have won medals and world championships, others didn't win anything but a once-in-a-lifetime experience. And ever since the USA Baseball organization began formally operating a full-time executive staff - in large part due to the success of the '84 Games - our goal has always been two-fold: 1) to place competitive teams in every international competition, to give our athletes the best possible baseball experience, and 2) prepare players for future Olympic Games in order to have the best chance to win the Olympic gold medal. USA Baseball's first taste of gold medal success was in 1988, when Mark Marquess led his Olympic squad to the gold in Seoul, Korea. But because baseball was a demonstration sport at the time, the medal was unofficial. Therefore, when Tommy Lasorda and his band of professional minor-leaguers shocked the Cubans at the 2000 Games in Sydney, it became the first ever official Olympic gold medal for USA Baseball.

Click Above The USA Baseball National Team consists of the top collegiate baseball players in the country. USA Baseball has been operating and selecting our National Team since the mid-seventies, and the team first came into full fruition at the 1984 Olympic Games in Los Angeles. Legendary USC & Team USA head coach Rod Dedeaux was instrumental in organizing the first ever Olympic Baseball Tournament, as eight countries participated at Dodger Stadium. Baseball was given "Demonstration Sport" status, and Japan defeated the heavily favored Americans for the Gold Medal. Every summer since then, USA Baseball has held an invitation only trials at their training facility, to select that year's National Team. Approximately 35-45 of the top collegiate players from the country are invited for a 3-4 day process. After a roster has been chosen of 20-22 players, t he team performs on a USA Baseball Red, White and Blue Tour each summer - a schedule of exhibition games all across America versus the world’s top baseball talent.

Sponsored by The Decathlon in Olympic History Table of Contents: The Jim Thorpe Story When King Gustav V of Sweden presented awards at the 1912 Olympic Games of Stockholm, he proclaimed to the decathlon winner, an American Indian named Jim Thorpe, as the world's top athlete. "You sir, are the world's greatest athlete." Incidentally, Jim is purported to have replied, "Thanks, King" to the Swedish monarch, a story, true or not, which itself has become part of the Thorpe saga. Ever since, the Olympic decathlon champion or world record holder has been dubbed "the World's Greatest Athlete." And rightly so, since the decathlon is the only objective test of all around athletic ability. Decathletes must contest ten separate events and have those performances tallied on a standard scoring table. The decathlon measures basic sporting ability like jumping, sprinting and throwing. Within the backdrop and rules of track and field, decathlon champions must exhibit, the 4 S's: speed, spring, strength and stamina. Since 1912 great decathlon champions like Bob Mathias, Rafer Johnson, Bruce Jenner and Daley Thompson and others have become household names. But they all owe much to the legend of Thorpe.

Future spot for architect's drawing!
The search is on. We have begun looking for land in central Pennsylvania to build a campus for the Institute. Our plan is described in more detail below. Eventually we anticipate that this campus will be one of the largest sports facilities in Pennsylvania.
The IISOH effectively has two divisions the Library and the Museum. The Board of Directors are seeking benefactor(s) to endow each division with a $25 million donation. An endowment will also be sought for the theatre in the amount of $25 million. The benefactor(s) will then be offered the opportunity to name the Library, Museum or theatre, subject to the final approval of the Board of Directors.
Go to the ENDOWMENTS page.

Our plans are to construct facilities on a campus approximately 300 acres in size. This will allow us have room for expansion in the decades to come as we increase the endowment and add sports facilities to the educational program. Sports fields are desirable in order to teach through participation and play. If we have a baseball field we can teach the history of baseball by playing a game using 1860 rules for 3 innings, then playing by modern rules for 3 innings. In the basement of the Museum we could have a bowling alley from the 1800's where the pins have to be set by hand, and right next to it have a modern bowling alley that is fully automated. Our visitors can go bowling either way. Consider the possibilities for each and every sport this means a lot of space is needed.

"For me, stealing second is a lot easier after I've reached first." -ENZO HERNANDEZ, as Padre shortstop in 1973 Christy Mathewson and Joe McGinnity give up 11 first inning runs allowing the Cubs to rout the Giants, 19-0. After having little success in vaudeville and the movies, hard drinking and battling Turkey Mike Donlin returns to the Giants. His baseball comeback will fall short. Due to the body of a slain girl found at the ballpark in Kingsport, Tennessee, the game is canceled to prevent the bloodhounds from becoming confused. In a game against the Red Sox, Indians' pitcher Johnny Allen storms off the mound and doesn't return when he is ordered by ump Bill McGowan to cut off his distracting dangling sweatshirt sleeve. The shirt ends up in the Hall of Fame but the Lenoir, North Carolina doesn't.

OLYMPIC HISTORY Jim Thorpe The star of Olympic baseball has been Orestes Kindelan Olivares, of Cuba, a member of the winning 1992 and 1996 teams who in Atlanta established a Games record of nine home runs in nine games. One of those home runs was a 159 metre (521ft) hit that helped to dictate that aluminium bats will not be allowed in Sydney; the hit was the longest home run ever at the Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium, home of one of the top US teams. Cuba, despite the introduction of professionals, remains the team to beat, having won every world championship title since 1974. Much, however, will depend on which professionals from the likes of the US and Japan make themselves available to play for their national teams in Sydney.

Professional players are eligible to take part for the first time in the Olympics, which could affect powerhouse Cuba. The Cubans won the first two Olympic gold medals in 1992 and 1996 and have taken every world championship since 1974. Watch for former major leaguers Tim Raines and Dave Nilsson, who will catch for Australia, which earned an automatic bid as the host nation. The finer points
Format: The field consists of eight teams of 20 players playing in a round-robin tournament. The top four teams progress to the semifinals. Rules: Games will be played under International Baseball Association rules with two exceptions: (1) aluminum bats are allowed, and (2) a 10-run difference rule is used (game ends if a team is losing by 10 or more runs after having batted seven times). Olympic debut: Professional players will be allowed to participate for the first time in Olympic history.

Olympic Baseball
Baseball was a demonstration sport at the Olympics six times: At Stockholm in 1912, Berlin in 1936, Melbourne in 1956, Tokyo in 1964, Los Angeles in 1984, and Seoul in 1988. That's an Olympic record. It finally became a medal sport in 1992. Because the Olympics conflict with the major league season, American teams have been made up primarily of college players. Eight teams enter the Olympic tournament. The host nation qualifies automatically, while the other seven teams qualify through regional tournaments. Two are from the Americas, two from Europe, two from Asia, and the seventh is the winner of a playoff game between the top teams from Oceania and Africa. Olympic competition begins with a round robin tournament. The four teams with the best records then advance to a single-elimination tournament, in which the first-place team faces the fourth-place team and the second- and third-place teams meet in the first round. The designated hitter is used in Olympic competition. In both the round robin tournament and the medal tournament, if a team leads by 10 runs or more after seven innings, the game ends with that team declared the victor.
