    "Inclusion/Exclusion: Softball's Olympic Odyssey" by Don Porter

    "No matter where you are in the world right now, there is a softball game being played. This game has drawn men and women, young and old, from across the globe to its fields of play. As it moved from the vacant lots of America, around the world, and into the ballparks of the Olympics, softball found its way into the hearts of millions.At the heart of this journey was one man who worked tirelessly and selflessly to see the dream of softball's inclusion in the Olympics come to fruition. Though faced with much adversity on the journey, he swore to never give up. This is the untold story of the leadership and tenacity of Don Porter in the quest to bring softball into the Olympic realm and keep it there."
