And of the two sports on the chopping block, saving baseball rather than soccer makes some sense. Both are sports with a long history at Towson, and both the governor and comptroller had sought to save both. However, if soccer is eliminated, it would be relatively easy to restore at some point because the men's and women's teams share the same facilities. If baseball is eliminated, however, the university would likely move the softball team from its relatively shabby field to the baseball stadium, making it harder to bring the men's team back someday. Moreover, the baseball team may be somewhat more likely to raise the money necessary to become self-sustaining.
