There are only 11.7 scholarships for baseball, IF the school is fully funded.
The minimum scholarship: 25%
Maximum on athletic scholarship: 27
Maximum on roster: 35.
So, if you hear of the school giving 30%, 50% 75% scholarships....the total number players on athletic scholarships MAY NOT BE 27. Mathematically, it can be a nightmare for the coaches. Coaches love players that get academic money. There are many players playing for free, and glad to do so.
I agree, coaches like players who qualify for academics, as well as need based grants.
FYI, coaches use programs so they know at anytime how much they have to spend, who gets what, so it really isn't a nightmare.
