Really surprised at the baseball/softball funding are there teams in the UK? London 2012 organizers even managed to get them out of the olympics because they didn't want to build stadia.
Yes there are baseball and softball teams in the UK, quite a few in London actually (at least as many as hockey, which I admit is damning w/ faint praise).

Baseball and softball got dropped from the Olympics because MLB was totally uninterested in suspending the season for the Olympics. There were plans to build temporary baseball stadiums (but keeping the fields for future use) in Regent's Park.
