Looking at playing college baseball? There are over 1,600 college baseball programs with approximately 50,000 college baseball players. College baseball is categorized as an equivalency sport which means that scholarships can be divided up and given to multiple players.
Therefore, full-ride athletic scholarships are rare in college baseball and some players are either on partial athletic scholarships or do not receive athletic scholarship money. In addition, some programs are not “fully funded”, meaning the athletic department at the school does not give them the full allotment of scholarships allowed at their level.
