Don't think too many MLB players have to worry about being suspended for having PHD's.

Question for Drungo: have there ever been any major leaguers with a PhD? Or former baseball players who got one later, a la Dr. Brian May?

I know about Moe Berg, who graduated Princeton magna cum laude and got a law degree from Columbia.

Drungo might be able to answer this better, but I wasn't able to find any cases of a current player with a PhD although there have been several players who have gone on to complete higher education

Rich Nye (PhD in Veterinary Science)

Bobby Brown (Medical Degree from Tulane)

Tom House (PhD in Sports Psychology from the U.S. International University)

Tony LaRussa (J.D. from FSU)

Apparently it's fairly rare that a major leaguer obtains a four-year degree. In 2012, of the 917 players that apperared in at least one game, only 39 had a college degree.

Best I could find:

Despite the rather idiotic comment made by the bonehead above, there have been ballplayers with degrees.

And probably even some fairly casual fans known of Dr. Bobby Brown, who was the President of the American League for ten years before that position was abolished in 1994. He also served as the President of the Texas Rangers in the early 1980's, and had an eight year career with the Yankees WHILE he was getting his MD.

Another is former relief pitcher Tom House (probably best known for catching Hank Aaron's 715th homer) who is now a renown pitching instructor. He holds a PhD in psychology with a focus in sports psychology.

Yet another is former pitcher Rich Nye, who retired from the game in 1970 and became a veterinarian. He also holds a doctorate.(he is considered to be one of the foremost avian vets in the world and is well respected for his work with more exotic animals.)

And perhaps the best known of more recent times is Tony LaRussa, who received his J.D from the Florida State University of law in 1974 while still an active player in the minors(but after his MLB career ended) and who was admitted to the Florida Bar.

I''m sure there are many more - probably rare to happen while a player is still active due to the time commitments, but given that a good number of players have at least some college (and also that a player going to a 4 year school has to stay at least 3 years before being drafted) I would say the number will increase.

You might want to clarify that this is all a quote and you aren't referring to the poster above you as a bonehead. I was about to neg-rep.

If you can't figure this out for your self, by all means neg rep me, I think the whole idea of neg rep is juvenile at best, and it probabaly fits you.

Mike Marshall is a doctor of kinesiology.

What I find interesting about Berg is that he did almost nothing with his degrees. He was a spy of sorts in WWII, but besides that he seemed to get by in life by getting people to give him backup catching jobs, room, and board for being The Worlds Smartest Ballplayer, and a good storyteller.

    • Why would they? What's in it for them?
    • Would the O's and the Jays both have to agree to play on Thursday? I'm not sure they would agree to it.
    • I bet tomorrow the 5 sitting today will start   Chirinos  C  Nevin  3rd Odor  2nd  Stowers  RF Mountcastle   1B    Two of this bunch sits  * my guess* Adley Gunnar  Mullins  Hays * Mateo * Santander    Will not start plus 2 from above Aguilar  Vavra McKenna 
    • Because you can’t see the obvious.  There’s no reason to talk to you. You aren’t a genuine person to discuss things with.  It’s easier to just laugh at you.
    • I agree, but ideally Henderson stays at third while we sign Turner to play short (hoping we have a shot since he may prefer east coast). Turner, Mullins, Henderson is a nice top 3. 
    • Elias has put together the Core that he hopes will carry the O's to a World Series.   Some of us are trying to trade this core away but I don't think Elias will. Who is the Core: 1.1 Catcher Adley Rutschman (24) 2nd rounder SS/3B  Gunnar Henderson (21) 1st rounder LF  Colton Cowser  (22) - sometime in 2023  30th pick  Jordan Westburg (23) -  2B/3B/1B to start 2023  1st rounder 1B Ryan Mountcastle (25) - Drafted by Duquette  2nd rounder  RF  Kyle Stowers  (24) 4th rounder  2B/SS/3B   Joey Ortiz   (24) -sometime in 2023 2nd rounder  DH/2B  Connor Norby (22) - sometime in 2023 1.1   Jackson Holliday  SS/CF (18)  -  In 2025 1st  rounder  Grayson Rodriguez SP (22) - Start of 2023 1st rounder  DL Hall (24)  -  Sometime as a starter in 2023 Dean Kremer (26)   Kyle Bradish (26) Felix Bautista (27) Cionel Perez (26) These are the  players that the O's are building around.  Not trading.   Sure there are players needed to supplement these guys. And not all of them will make it but this is the direction I think they are headed. They don't have a player that can replace CF Cedric Mullins yet but as these players make the majors the current players will be traded to resupply the minors.  To start 2023 they will need Santander and Hays until the core players are ready. This does not mean that players, especially pitchers, can not be added to fill in where needed.  I just don't think these core players are likely to be traded. JMO          
    • You're right, this must be a series that was originally scheduled for the first week. Teams with open-air stadiums, like the Orioles, typically schedule their opening series for three games in four days, with an off-date between the first and second games.  This is so that if there's a rainout on the original date of Opening Day, fans who bought tickets for Opening Day can use them when the game is made up on the next day. The Mariners, who didn't have to worry about a rainout, were free to schedule four games in  four days, so apparently that's what they did.  And with that series having been postponed due to the labor dispute, now they only have three days to get those four games in. Ironically, the fact that they have a roof on their stadium is a big part of the reason why they have to play a doubleheader now.
