"If I have a degree, I feel like I’m playing baseball with house money," he said. "I have nothing to lose. It keeps me from playing baseball for a paycheck."

"Same youth team produced Strasburg, Leake" - MLB - Yahoo! Sports - Steve Henson

"During a national youth tournament a decade ago in suffocating August heat, hard-throwing 11-year-old Stephen Strasburg melted down. A couple of hits, an error and a wild pitch caused emotions to well up and explode. His catcher, an undersized whippet named Mike Leake, tried unsuccessfully to console the pitcher."
