Local High School Baseball Players Hurt by Low Number of AZ College Programs

Arizona has just four four-year colleges that have baseball programs, the sixth-fewest in the nation despite being 15th in population. 

Chandler Seton Catholic coach Marty Maier has a solution, but admits it will never come to pass, and certainly not for the purpose of improving the college prospects of local baseball players. But in a perfect world, he’d see some of the more populous local community colleges — such as the 25,000-student Mesa Community College and the 16,000-student Gateway Community College — expanded to four-year schools.
