    NCAA to grant baseball seniors another year of eligibility

    NCAA has just granted seniors another year of eligibility if they want it. The lower divisions have followed suit. Right now D1 has 11.75 scholarships to give to 27 players. You can have up to 8 walk-ons. Each kid has to get 25% scholarship. This is great for seniors, I get that. They deserve it. However when you have winners you have losers and those losers are seniors in highschool. The NCAA said they will probably expand scholarships (probably 3) and teams can expand their roasters. This doesn't really help highschool seniors. Some who would have gotten a scholarship won't, and those that do will go to a bloated, expanded team. I'm glad my son is only a sophomore. There's a whole cluster of possible scenarios that could happen. A kid that has already signed gets a call that a lot of seniors are coming back, none for you. Or, you go to a team you thought you had a shot of playing some and you don't sniff the field because a starting Senior is returning.
    College seniors got screwed over. They deserve another season but high school seniors will be in a bad spot. No easy solutions.

    Where does it end? All the student athletes who’s sport was affected is losing a year of eligibility, is this just treated as a red shirt season for all?
    When I see the 2016 Reds, I see a 100 loss team and no direction.

    I think they almost have to. If I am a sophomore and lost a year of development and see seniors getting an extra year unpenalized I’m probably asking for that shot. Knowing how many don’t get a shot at the next level and want to make it last as long as the can.
