    Does Lehigh, and other PL schools, give any baseball scholarships? I know the NCAA limit is 11.7 scholarships in baseball, but wondering how funded the Lehigh program, and the PL in general, is compared to the rest of the country.

    Yes. We do. How many? No idea. I’m sure some others do. With Title IX, I expect schollies may have been reduced or eliminated throughout PL in baseball.

    Not sure exact number, my guess is the roster is whacking up 8-10 scholarships. Usually, your stud pitcher gets a full ride and one stud position player. Your stud pitchers throws the important league weekend games. Midweek games get lesser pitching. Rest of guys are getting partials to zero. That’s the way it works at the D1 places I have knowledge about.

    Think max is 11.7. Given Title IX and football adding 60 on men’s side doubt we have anywhere near max in athletic aid. Agree that P”s get priority.

    I knew a kid who played at BC and he told me team was splitting 9.9 a few years ago. Have known some Rutgers players and at least a few years back they were not fully funded. Read on Internet that PL had no scholarships in baseball. So, unsure.

    NCAA raised baseball I quess. Pards give a couple. Think Bucknell also. Not sure about others.

    I believe LC gives out a couple now. Bucknell has none, and I don’t think HC has any.

    I don’t have any first-hand knowledge, but I doubt LU is giving out anywhere close to 8-10. A couple of years ago, the total was less than four. As mentioned above, LC has a couple while Bucknell and Holy Cross both have zero.

    If they are giving out as many as 8, there is no excuse for LU not to run away with the league every year.

    Baseball had 5 in ’14. All partials from what I’m told. Would not be surprised if BU has at least some.

    Then I will assume that the Academies are at a huge advantage in this regards…..of course there is that commitment thing :-)

    If BU means Bucknell, then that is not correct. They have no baseball scholarships. There is some need-based aid, but not a lot that is considered athletic aid.

    Last year, the four non-academy teams spent the following on athletic aid, salaries, benefits, equipment, and recruiting expenses:

    Bucknell 262,632
    Holy Cross 241,174
    Lafayette 446,752
    Lehigh 487,884

    Note: Does not include game/travel expenses.

    If you make an arbitrary assumption that salaries, benefits, equipment and recruiting expenses were 225k per school, then the athletic aid would look like this:

    Bucknell 37,232
    Holy Cross 16,174
    Lafayette 221,752
    Lehigh 262,884

    Note that not all athletically-related aid is scholarship money. It can be need-based aid that is structured differently for an athlete, e.g. more grants, less loans.

    No JB referring to Boston.

    Told by alum today that played there that Villanova is at about 8 rides. 2-3 full rides, some partials, usually about 20/25%, and probably half of team paying their own way.
