Saw a 2022 back in town a few weeks ago even though his D1 college team is participating in the postseason. The story I heard afterwards was (1) he was redshirted and (2) because he was a freshman, he had to live in the dorm and the dorm kicks you out the day after your classes end...so he had no place to live even though the team was still playing, and (3) he's transferring to a Juco anyway. So, he left the team and came home despite them playing in the postseason.
That makes sense.
I know of another group of 2022s at another school who were all redshirted and their team made the CWS (D2). And, some of them are less than thrilled that they have to go to Cary even though they haven't played all year and can't play in the CWS. (Personally, I would want to go just to watch. But, I guess these guys are anxious to start their summer league play since they haven't played at all all spring.)
What's the norm when it comes to redshirted players and the postseason once school is out?
