has essentially the same value [at any school] and schools [can] cover each position 3 to 4 times over. Baseball, however, is different. It is limited to 11.7 scholarships for a 35-man roster, and those are doled out not in terms of yes and no, but in percentages and fractions."

The article goes on to explain how this scholarship policy (set forth by the NCAA) creates an extremely non-level playing field, giving some schools an enormous recruiting advantage based purely on scholarship/financial-aid dynamics.

If that's the case, why doesn't the NCAA change the scholarship policy of baseball (and all team sports) to be more like football & basketball?
