Baseball scholarships are more plentiful than scholarships in many other sports,
and players of all skill levels may find themselves eligible for a number of awards
offered not only by the college they plan to attend, but by local leagues and organizations.
Most of the local scholarships place some weight on financial need, extracurricular
activities and academic records, but for some you only need to prove you have played
on those local teams to be eligible.
Most of the larger schools have scholarship funds offered by alumni who have played
on their college team, or funding dedicated to drawing talented baseball players
to that college. Often coaches may be able to choose whether to divide available
funding among a group to form the strongest team or give the bulk of funding to
one particularly talented player that has impressed them on the field and that they
would like to recruit. But don’t rule out the lesser-known funding sources, as they
may be far less competitive and just as generous as awards given by your college.
Check out some examples of baseball scholarships below. For additional information
about baseball scholarships and awards based on different criteria, try conducting
