Milwaukee Journal, June 24, 1914:
Baseball was today rejected as one of the sports at the Olympic games, to be held in 1916 at Berlin. James E. Sullivan, head of the American delegation, requested that baseball be included, but the president, Baron Pierre De Coubertin, reminded him that it was necessary, in order to have baseball considered an international sport, that six countries should play the game.
Same as it ever was.
Not that it mattered. As you might imagine, Berlin was far too busy worrying about other things to host the Olympics in 1916.
