1904 Olympics and Baseball
I've been trying to find information on the 1904 baseball tournament during the St. Louis Olympics. I've found vague references to a college tournament that may or may not have taken place at Francis Field. I've also found a contest in which native Americans competed to see who could throw a baseball faster, although that was part of the World's Fair, which was running alongside the Olympics. Does anyone have anything more concrete or detailed?
I would LOVE more information
The first three times baseball was allowed in the Olympics (1904, 1912 and 1928) there was just one exhibition game played between the United States and the host country. The United State did not use baseball players but track & field athletes for the baseball team.
