    Can't really see this doing much for college baseball. Obviously good for the kids, but figure the juniors who are good enough to be drafted will leave regardless and seniors are still playing in college as seniors typically because they aren't that good anyway. Takes away a spot from a potential promising freshman coming in for a mediocre senior unless the NCAA increases roster limits.

    Of course the coach could just tell the senior they don't have room for him but the PR on that would be pretty brutal.
