    Andy, the Triad has some really talented baseball players, where many Colleges fail to recruit here. Yesterday Ragsdale alone had 3 recent grads playing on the next level:
    Matt Horkey UNCC: 2 scoreless IP
    Cesar Trejo UNCG: 2 Doubles: https://t.co/IfMfTTo4CD
    Colin Lipke W&M: HR and game winning hit: BTN Student U (@BTNStudentU) _ Twitter

    You are correct…We have mentioned Trejo several times here at the site this college season and I have seen Lipke’s name more than once showing up on Twitter and Horkey has been with Charlotte a while now and he has never wavered, Matt Horkey stayed the course and he is doing great….Very good of you to drop in what these young men were doing on the Diamond yesterday and they do represent the Diamond R well……

    And just to verify and solidify your point, look at what the starting pitchers did on the last/final day of the Farm Bureau/Grasshoppers Baseball Tournament…

    Game One a Complete Game from MAC’s/McMichael’s Justin O’Neal

    Game Two a Complete Game from Rockingham County’s Jonathan Todd

    Game Three a Complete Game from Western Alamance’s Kolby Stuart

    Game Four a Complete Game from Wesleyan’s Brett Kerry

    Complete games and W’s from all four and need we say more, there is a lot of baseball talent in our area….

    There are not a lot of full baseball scholarships being handed out.

    http://www.scholarshipstats.com/baseball.html
    Baseball is an equivalency sport for NCAA scholarship purposes, so partial scholarships can be awarded to meet the NCAA limit per school. For example, an NCAA Division II school can award 27 players each a 1/3 equivalent scholarship and still meet the limit of 9. For more information see our page on scholarship limits.

    Do the Math! The average NCAA Division I baseball team has a roster of 35 players but only a maximum of 11.7 athletic scholarships available. This means the average award covers only about 1/3 of annual college costs and this assumes the sport is fully funded at the sponsoring school.

    * Average Athletic Scholarship is the average award per athlete for ALL varsity sports sponsored by the specific school. Some athletes receive full awards, some receive partial and many receive none. Additionally some sports within a school may be fully funded, some partially and some sports provide no athletic scholarships. Private schools generally have higher tuition than public schools and the average award will reflect this.
