Olympic dream "taken away" from ex-Michigan softball star Amanda Chidester

Articles like this drive me nuts. It never mentions why softball and baseball were dropped as Olympic Sports and the initial vote to drop it happened almost 7 years ago. I feel bad for the UM player mentioned but if I remember correctly, the USOC decided that there wasn't enough international competition (the sport was dominated by a few countries primarily the US) and not enough countries were participating.
