Hello,

I'm sorry, but the news is not good. I've searched extensively and I'm not able to access the information you need for your paper. I've searched our databases and the open web and am not able to find full text, scholarly articles on your topic. This is due in part to the topic. Universities purchase databases to support their curricula, and we don't have the kinds of sports or sports management programs that would warrant the expense. That's why I also checked the open web.

I did find this information, but it is not scholarly: http://www.ncaa.org/about/resources/research/probability-competing-beyond-high-school  .

It's not unusual to have difficulty finding scholarly articles on some topics. Academics research topics that will expand the knowledge in their field of study. This does not necessarily include questions that the general public want to know.

Unfortunately, my suggestion is to choose a more academic topic relating to baseball. There is extensive information available in our databases on the economic impact of MLB franchises, or on sports medicine or psychology, for example.
