NCAA throws baseball coaches a curve with added eligibility

LSU baseball head coach Paul Mainieri watches his players practice before a game against Indiana in Baton Rouge, La. The widely praised NCAA decision to extend the eligibility of spring sports athletes who had their seasons abruptly end because of the coronavirus pandemic creates headaches for baseball and softball coaches who have to manage rosters that could become unwieldy.
Ohio State coach Greg Beals stands in the dugout at TD Ameritrade Park during the NCAA Big Ten baseball championship game in Omaha, Neb. Beals said Tuesday that he isn’t worried about the 2021 season, when the NCAA will relax the roster limit to accommodate seniors who return for another season. But with 11 incoming freshmen joining nine players who will be getting a second freshman year in 2021, Beals will face a logjam of players in 2022, especially with the 35-man roster limit back in force.
