I don't know if BC has a fully funded baseball program like other ACC teams do but would guess it's pretty close to the max HC does not give any athletic aid to baseball players - do any of the non-military schools give any ?
BC is fully funded at the max 11.7 scholarships now.
It is terrible that they are so bad in the ACC as they have no excuse with an indoor baseball/softball facility, a new stadium, and a new indoor football facility.
Just for comparison purposes...Hop Riopel (back in the 1960s) had 8 scholarships - 2 per year. He almost always used them for pitchers. Although he did give pone to our catcher in the class of 1967 (Kelly). There were also scholarship players from other sports (Wendelken and others). I am not sure how those count today.
Bud Knittle, Jim Gravel, Pat Bourque and Phil O'Neil come to mind.

Well, if we can take advantage of playing at home, we might make a move to the playoffs - originally we were playing a dh at AWP on Saturday and a home dh on Sunday - that has been changed and all four games of the series are at Fitton - and our final 3 game series the following weekend vs. Lafayette is also at home. Opportunity knocks BUT will the administration allow anyone in the stands ?
They (those with schollies in other sports) used to be the backbone of the team. They played baseball because they loved the sport not for a scholarship.
Playing a college sport has become a year-long x 3.5 year commitment. Kind of sad. Some of our best hoops players probably never touched a weight. Tangentially, I'd recruit the Power kid from St. John's/Worcester Academy with a promise he could play two sports.

That was a huge two outs, with the bases loaded.
Lopes did walk in one run.
HC 12 Army 9
Headed to the bottom of the 8th
Army with a homer to straight away center. 1 out. Lopes arm is dead from pitching earlier. HC 13 Army 11
Army with a hit and Lopes comes back with a 3 pitch strike out.
Army with another run. HC 13 Army 12
Game is a tied. HC 13 Army 13
Runners on the corners 2 outs. 4 runs in the 9th. 50 pitches by Lopes. Come on Cross we need this game.
3 outs with the strikeout. The Cross needs to win this game in the bottom of the inning.
Selima hits a shot climbing that high wall. Drops for a single. Earlier he had hit the grandslam over that wall. He also walked off the 1st game. Lets hope he scores the winning run in this game. Army makes a pitching change with 1 out, Selima on 1st.
