Marcus Stroman: Video Star and Soon-To-Be Rapper

Marcus Stroman is a star; there’s no doubt about it. On the field, he’s the consummate competitor and he thrives on the spotlight. It turns out he shines off the field, as well.

Last week, Mike Stud released the teaser trailer for his “These Days” video, which featured his good friend Marcus Stroman. This evening, he released the full music video for the track which prominently features Stro himself.

And Mike Stud says “starring Marcus Stroman” … he means it, as stroman gets the lion’s share of the screen time.


But wait … there’s more! Mike Stud confirmed Marcus Stroman will actually rap on the album; on the “These Days Remix” which comes out on Monday.

If you’re wondering how these guys know each other, both Marcus Stroman and Michael Seander (his real name) went to Duke University together. Sander was also a baseball player himself until he was sidelined by Tommy John surgery, so he turned to music.

And now, Mike Stud will soon release his fourth studio album. “These Days” will be released on Monday. Jays fans will be waiting in anticipation to see how Stroman sounds on the album.
