True, but it's still a lot of money. Even a 40% scholarship is thousands of dollars. There are other perks that come with staying in school, too. Every student athlete knows the benefits and consequences of staying in school or signing a professional contract. At some point, you have to decide: am I a baseball player, or am I something else? If you're going to take it seriously, then sign the contract before you graduate and finish school later if you'd like. If it's your backup plan, then feel free to treat it as such.
