Draft dilemma: Go pro or go to college?

To go pro or to go (or stay in) college? This has been a question that many top baseball players have faced over the years.

For the best baseball prospects, they have a college scholarship in hand and have made a college commitment, yet they also are selected by a major-league team in the MLB draft. Both represent amazing opportunities and the culmination of many dreams.
