The Los Angeles Olympics organizing committee briefed Major League Baseball owners Wednesday on possible methods that would allow its active players to compete for the first time in the Olympics, the Athletic reported.

According to the story, Los Angeles organizing committee chairman Casey Wasserman outlined four possibilities to make participating in the 2028 Olympics more appealing to MLB teams, including a small six- to eight-team tournament and a brief five- or six-day competition in mid-July.

Two other suggestions were shortening MLB's regular season and canceling its all-star game.

"There's been a lot of growing support, a lot of it based on the great success of the World Baseball Classic last year," the story quoted one attendant at the meeting in Florida.
