Arizona State has an excellent baseball program, but the education provided at the university isn’t exactly on par with Pac-12 counterpart Stanford, for example.
Boston Red Sox star and Sun Devils alumnus Dustin Pedroia admitted as much prior to Game 2 of the 2013 World Series on Thursday night – in hilarious fashion of course. When asked about the “validity” to the rumors that teammate Jon Lester was doctoring his pitches with an illegal substance, the second baseman gave about as honest of an answer as you will get.
“I don’t know what that word is, man,” Pedroia said. “Arizona State education, bro.”
Can’t fault the guy for being honest.
