Cal axes men's gymnastics and baseball

Men's NCAA gymnastics will take another hit next year when the University of California at Berkeley eliminates the sport. As it is, only a dozen NCAA teams exist, thanks in large part to the implementation of Title IX. Cal is axing men's gymnastics (but keeping women's gymnastics) as a cost-cutting measure; their men's baseball team is also being cut. It's a shame that a program that brought us Graham Ackerman is being eliminated, but with the pressures from a slumping economy and Title IX, an NCAA void of men's gymnastics is the world we live in.
