Players want an Olympic choice



Chamberlain is more clear about the course she’d take. It goes back to a third-grade project she completed detailing how she wanted to be an Olympic softball player.

“I can say that I hope I’m still playing,” she said. “I don’t think I can give it up that soon.”

Still, what Chamberlain and Kreger really want is the same thing.

“I look forward to having to make that decision,” Chamberlain said.

It might be an impossible choice, but it’s the choice they want. 

Come September, they’ll be voting in Buenes Aires. The future of a sport might be at stake. The future of several young women who play that sport will most definitely be at stake.

If they want it to be their future. Because all they want is the choice.
