My name is Monique Fuiava and I plate softball since I was 7 years old. I grew up in Lynwood and had the best opportunity to play at the University of Oregon from 2007-2011. After I graduated, I played and coached in Germany for the summer and came home to coach one of the varsity teams at a local high school.

Softball was the only sport I loved, and when I found out it was taken out of the Olympic Games.. I was upset!

I've always dreamed of the opportunity to represent my homeland in the Olympic Games, and now.. All I can do is train and wait!

I'd love the opportunity to step on the field one last time representing my country this time! I know many other girls also felt this same way playing ball!

Let's bring softball back to the Olympics!

I AM IN FULL SUPPORT OF THIS MOVEMENT!

SOFTBALL WOULD BE IN OLYMPICS.

I belong to Pakistan and always tried to enhance the sports activities in youth specially in children. And Softball is a very wonderful sport for new generation.

Many people and players would be happy to select the Softball in Olympics.

By not bringing the sport back into the Olympics you are crushing lots of young athletic boyes dreams, including mine. I can guarantee you that more people would be interested in the Olympics if you brought back softball. Softball is way more popular than most of the other sports in the runner up. I mean come on, rugby? Are we really that lame? golf? I don't think so. If you are reading this right now just know that by not bringing softball back you are a crushing dreams, decreasing the viewer percentage, and over all drawing less attention to the Olympics. This is only the start. You watch when pretty soon all we have left in the Olympics is wimpy British sports like bad-mitten. No offense intended.

Wonderful. Merge with baseball. Aren't you the International SOFTBALL Federation? Why wouldn't you support men's fastpitch? What a joke!! You and your ASA brothers do NOTHING to support men's fastpitch softball and this is further proof. It's very sad that you don't even try to support the male game.

I agree that softball needs to make a comeback into the Olympics. These female athletes are tremendous role models for young women and girls around the world. There is not reason these female athletes should not be recognized for the hard work and dedication that they put into their sport. I played softball for ten years growing up and it is still something that I am very involved with. It helped me make new friends and taught me many valuable life lessons, such as being on time and being committed. I feel that softball was wrongly removed from the Olympic program and we should do everything in our power to help bring it back to the glorious Olympic arena where it bleongs.

I am a french softball player, and I'm so desapointed there's not softball at the olympics this summer! When i'm watching the olympics on Tv, I just think that 4 years ago in Beijing there was softball!! And when I see that there are sports like tennis, or you know, soccer or even beach volley what is the same as volleyball, it's so amazing!!! why there isn't softball??!!! I really love softball, and I want it back for the olympics in 2020! All french softball players want it!!! That's very impportant for us so please let it get back!!! :D
