Why Baseball in Greece?

With other very popular sports in Greece in full swing, why is baseball so important?

Baseball in Greece owes it’s birth and persistent existence to the International Olympic Committee’s 1997 decision that awarded the 2004 Olympic Games to Athens, Greece.

As the organizing nation, Greece had the opportunity to field representative teams for all the team sports included in the then Olympics program such as soccer, basketball, volleyball, softball, field hockey, and baseball.
