Complete Video Of Stephen Strasburg’s Rehab Start For Hagerstown Suns On Sunday

An outstanding job by the folks at BaseballNewsHound.com who taped all of Washington Nationals pitcher Stephen Strasburg‘s rehab start on Sunday for Hagerstown. They have edited down the footage into an eight minute clip showing all 31 of Strasburg’s pitches against the Greensboro Grasshoppers. In addition at the end of the video they show the sea of people hoping for Strasburg’s autograph after the game. Outstanding job both with the video taping as well as the editing process.
