Actually this is a good idea. I mentioned in a other thread that BB/Sb would higher their chances to get back in the O Programm if they work together and become one sport played be men and woman. At the moment both count as an extra sport.
at the moment there are majors problems.
We have two governing bodys -IBAF and ISF
ISF will go his way apart of IBAF and is asking BB/SB Federations to split from BB
BB is also played by woman SB also by men - both are not big enough to force a good tournament. IOC is looking for sports played be men and woman at least on 3/4 of the world. They want to have pros playing etc.
BB men - ok
BB woman - no
SB men - no
SB woman - ok
Also the WBC is (in my opinion) not an official tournament/title in the world of BB like WC, Continental Championships etc because it is an inivitational tournament with merchandising goals. MLB is not a federation. Their goal is not to develope BB or spread it to the world.
The only thing you know is you never know and that you know for sure!
