Abstract:     
The article first addresses the NCAA's regulations regarding the use of agents applicable to all sports. It then discusses the major league baseball draft process, including the Major League Baseball Rules governing the annual amateur draft, and how the NCAA's "no agent rule" impacts amateur players who are draft-eligible, as well as those who are ultimately drafted. In light of the particularities and uniqueness of the baseball draft process, the author argues that it is in the best interest of the amateur baseball player to be permitted to retain an agent under the supervision and control of the player's collegiate institution, and for the NCAA to require the player and the agent to execute a standard athlete-agent representation agreement similar to the standard agreement issued by the NFLPA entered into between college football players and their agents.
