The XXVI IBAF Congress opened in Dallas, Texas on Saturday (US time).  A number of issues were discussed and a handful of important decisions were passed, like the unanimous approval of a joint Olympic bid with softball and the approval of making the World Baseball Classis the main official IBAF tournament.  Two new tournaments were also added to the IBAF line-up: the 21 and Under World Cup in 2014 (every other year) and the IBAF Premier 12 in 2015 (every four years).
