I agree with you. Reparations make no sense. I'm just saying it's not a free ride for kids, especially baseball players. I think UConn has given only two kids full baseball scholarships-- ever.

What we are talking about here is ethics. For example, not too long ago there were no child labor laws, a minimum wage, an eight hour work day, or overtime. The line between fairness and exploitation is ever-changing for sure, but when it does change, that doesn't imply one side owes the other money. Obviously, forced labor, slavery, and other forms of coercion are never acceptable. And to be clear, making billions of dollars off college athletes who were not forced to play a given sport, while clearly unbalanced, does not fall into this latter category of exploitation.
