>Drew Storen, pitcher for the Washington Nationals, will be attending classes at Stanford once the season is over… which, for the Nationals, was actually some time in late June.  Storen is working on his degree in product design from the school’s mechanical engineering department, realizes that baseball is only temporary.  He knows that his chances of earning a comfortable lifestyle are not great, especially given the fact that he plays on the Nationals.

In the same article, I learned that MLB is not well-known for its college degrees.  In fact, in a survey done by the Wall Street Journal, only 26 MLB players and managers have four-year college degrees.  I’m actually surprised by this.
