Fullerton, Calif. - In a continuation of his very special behind-the-scenes segment, team photographer Matt Brown brings you his photographic and audio documentation of former Titan closer Vinnie Pestano's return to baseball.
The side-winding Pestano was on his way to recording his 14th save of the season against USC in 2006, when his ulnar collateral ligament gave way ending his season. Since then, "Hurricane" has undergone Tommy John surgery and has begun his rehabilitation assignment.
On August 17, Pestano signed a professional contract with the Cleveland Indians.
The nationally-renowned, award-winning sports photographer, Brown, has been covering Titan athletics since the early 2000's and wanted to bring you, the fan, even closer to the action.
