OSU Pitcher Sues NCAA

Posted: Updated:

SANDUSKY, Ohio (AP) - One of college baseball's top pitchers is challenging the NCAA and its rules governing agents.

The lawsuit in a northern Ohio court could change how college baseball players deal with advisers and major league teams when they are drafted before their eligibility is over.

Oklahoma State pitcher Andrew Oliver was ruled ineligible by the NCAA just hours before he was to play in a tournament game last spring. The NCAA claimed advisers he had hired listened in on contract negotiations after he was drafted by the Minnesota Twins.

The NCAA allows players to hire advisers but prohibits them from contacting teams.

Oliver's attorneys argue the NCAA shouldn't restrict a player's right to have legal help when negotiating a big league contract.
