Should the Ripkens accept a scholarship?

It was exciting to hear that Ryan Ripken received a full scholarship to attend the University of South Carolina ("O's draft one more Ripken — Cal's son," June 7). How proud parents Cal Ripken Jr. and Kelly Ripken must be. But, wouldn't it have been much nicer if we also heard was Cal has decided to forgo the scholarship money so another child could attend the college?

They certainly can afford to pay for their child and should donate the money back to the school.
