STANFORD, Calif. -- Jason Castro can now add Stanford graduate to his list of accomplishments that includes an MLB All-Star Game selection. 

The Astros' catcher completed his course requirements this fall and was recently featured by for his return to The Farm. 

Castro's quotes to

"That was my intention my whole time, to graduate. I was so close when I was [drafted]. It wasn't a question of getting it. It was question of when."

"A lot of Stanford guys have graduated regardless of their playing careers. Most guys after their junior year have just a quarter left. They stress getting ahead of the curve so you don't have a full year or more after you leave to try to make up."

"A couple classes had decent amount of freshmen, which was funny. All the kids looked a lot younger than I felt when I was there. It was pretty startling."

"We can't play baseball as long as we'd like. At some point, I'll probably put [the degree] to use. Who knows what, but just having it and knowing it's something done and out of the way, when baseball is over, it's nice."
