According to a report from D1Baseball the NCAA lifted 35-man roster limitations Wednesday,June 6, letting baseball programs carry an unlimited number of players. Coaches can now offer less than 25% of a scholarship to accommodate the larger numbers, and players allowed on scholarship increased from 27 to 32. The changes will last one schoolyear.

Though baseball programs did not receive more scholarships or money to use on their rosters,they still have 11.7 total scholarships, the decision helps coaches who faced major roster cuts.

The MLB Draft lasting five rounds and the NCAA granting extended eligibility to all spring-sport athletes, college baseball will likely have more players next season.

Before, teams didn't have enough spots for their current players and incoming classes.
