  • Northeastern, MLB strike deal for player education

    State House News Service - 06/20/2017

    Some big names in baseball could be coming to Boston but they would be joining the Huskies, not necessarily the Red Sox.

    Northeastern University and Major League Baseball have forged a partnership to provide pro baseball players in the majors and minors with access to higher education programs and degrees to advance their education in the event their playing careers do not lead to Cooperstown.

    Roughly 7,000 MLB players — including 1,200 in the big league — will have access to Northeastern’s full range of academic offerings, including bachelor’s degree, master’s degree and certificate programs with both in-person and online courses.
