Baseball gets 10 or 11 scholarships, in D1. Those kids aren't getting free college. Some of them are getting partial free college and some aren't getting it at all. This isn't football and basketball where 90% of the team is on a full scholarship. In baseball maybe 1 kid per elite D1 team is on a full scholarship and the most of the other kids are splitting up the remaining 9-10 scholarships for the 25-30 kids.
