Marcus Stroman (Education)

MLB Player

Undergraduate Education: Sociology

Stroman studied at Duke University where he was a sociology major. Stroman left Duke once he was drafted by the Blue Jays in the 2012 MLB draft. In the early 2015 season however, after he tore his ACL, Stroman decided to return to Duke to complete his degree while he was doing his rehab. After his summer at Duke Stroman said, ““I never thought I’d say I’m thankful for tearing my ACL but I am because I grew so much as an individual. I was able to get my degree, I got stronger mentally, physically through it all. I’m in a great position now and that has a large part to do with the past summer I had at Duke University.” Stroman returned to Duke a year later during a Blue Jay’s road trip to participate in Duke’s graduation.
