College baseball and Pro baseball are the same thing except that in collee they are allowed to use alluminum baseball bats and college players dont get paid to play.
I think it is baseball because of how many players are in it.
According to Lahman it would from 1871 to 2008 it would be 17,264 having played pro baseball
a few hundred (not including minor league baseball)
