Baseball federation to vote on new president Friday
BEIJING -- Harvey Schiller and Reynaldo Gonzalez are making the same campaign promise: They'll work to get baseball back in the Olympics.
The former Turner Sports head and the Cuban hope to be elected president of the International Baseball Federation, which votes Friday. Aldo Notari of Italy, who held the job for 13 years, died last July.
By choosing Beijing as the venue for its vote, the IBAF is hoping to raise the sport's profile in the host city of the 2008 Olympics.
