There are two aspects of education that would benefit a pro baseball player - education on how to play effectively and education to manage your career.

Just about any school with a reputation for fielding competitive teams can teach you how to play effectively. Those with a high number of players going into the pro draft may be a little more effective. To figure out which schools that would be, get copies of the pro draft for the past 5 years and add up the number of players for each school. You also would want to look at turnover in the coaching staff. If the coaching staff that racked up all the wins is no longer there, then the past performance is a much weaker indicator as to how well you will be taught.

To find a school that can help manage a pro baseball player's career, you should look at schools with well regarded business programs, accounting programs, law programs, or management programs. Any one of those could be a good major that will give a future pro player skills that will help them manage their career and the money they make.

A quick review of some of the teams that played in the college World Series recently might be a good illustration:

South Carolina - outstanding baseball reputation - average academic reputation

Florida - outstanding baseball reputation - a little above average for academics

LSU - very good baseball reputation - a little above average for academics

Texas - outstanding baseball reputation - high academic reputation

Fresno State - very good baseball reputation - average academic reputation

Georgia - very good baseball reputation - average to above average academics

Oregon State - good baseball reputation - average to above average academics

North Carolina - good baseball reputation - outstanding academic reputation

Miami (FL) - outstanding baseball reputation - average academic reputation

Arizona State - outstanding baseball reputation - very good academic reputation

Southern Cal - very good baseball reputation - outstanding academic reputation

Florida State - very good baseball reputation - above average academic reputation

The list is certainly not exhaustive, but it illustrates that no one school is best. It depends on your priorities. None of them guarantee success - that part depends on the talent and commitment of the player.
