The Salt Lake Bees website has a story on its players earning college degrees while playing in the minors. Outfielder Nick Gorneault recently graduated with a degree in kinesiology from the University of Massachusetts. "It's kind of like sports medicine and exercise science," Gorneault said. Gorneault spent four years at UMass before being drafted by the Angels in 2001. Since then, he has been taking classes part time in the offseason to finish what he started. "I wanted to have that degree under my belt so I could broaden my opportunities of other things I can do," Gorneault said. "I am very happy that I went back to finish."
