@Big PappyThe number of scholarships BYU can give for baseball is
mandated by the ncaa and it is the same for every single school. In baseball
schools usually give partial scholarships, almost no one gets a full ride in
baseball at any school, so that more players can be on scholarship. The partial
scholarships given has nothing to do with being cheap it is simply how they do
it to try and maximize the number of players receiving a scholarship to some
level. All schools do it exactly the same way.As far as this trip to
the Dominican is concerned, well it is being paid for in large part by a large
BYU donor that has a foundation that does charitable work in the Dominican. The more you know....
Can't afford to give full baseball schlorships but can afford to take the whole
darn team to the DR. What is wrong with this picture? College athletics is out
of wack. If BYU wants better players, start giving better schlorships. We are
losing too many good LDS players to other schools who offer better schlorships.
And we wonder why the baseball program at BYU is getting worse rather than
better. I'm all for the Firesides and the like but lets build the program in
this country before going outside the USA.
That's nice! But BYU Baseball has got to be the most under achieving program in
the nation. Year after year they get decent recruits and do a horrible job
getting much out of them. It's obvious that winning and developing MLB talent is
not important to BYU baseball. If you are recruited to BYU to play baseball and
you want to get better at baseball and have an chance at the next level.....go
somewhere else. If you want to do Firesides in the Dominincan Republic and
extend your mission or serve and kinda mission....play baseball at BYU.
