NCAA reinstates 16 Wichita State players

WICHITA, Kan. -- Wichita State says it has received word that the NCAA is reinstating 16 baseball players who had been declared ineligible for competition this year for receiving discounted merchandise and apparel.

The university said Friday that eight players will be withheld from competition for a period correlating to the amount of benefits each received. Depending on the player, that could be three, six or nine games missed.

Athletic director Eric Sexton says in a news release the university feels the outcome is fair, and that the university had been working with the NCAA since first discovering the potential eligibility issues.

Head baseball coach Todd Butler called this an unfortunate situation for all involved. He says the players and program will overcome and move on to the upcoming season.
