IF Doston would change his mind and want to come to WVU, could he receive a baseball scholarship and walk-on in football ? Not going to happen but was curious how that would go down since WVU has used his scholarship
No, he could not go on scholarship for another sport, but if he did want to play football at any point or just return and attend college, MLB has a deal to pay for its players to attend college. Having signed a professional baseball contract, he can never return to play college baseball, because now he’s a pro in that sport. But he still has amateur status in other sports.
Greg, MLB does it right. Go straight out of HS. OR…. Go to college and you have to stay 3 years before you can enter the draft. If you get drafted they set $$$ aside for you to complete your degree. With 40 rounds very few of these guys will ever make it to the Majors. Most won’t get out of Rookie league or A Ball. This is a great safety net for all the kids. Even the ones that don’t go to college in the beginning.
