Fullerton College: A Pictorial History

After graduating from Troy High School in Fullerton, Steve Trachsel pitched for Fullerton College from 1988 to 1990, then transferred to California State University, Long Beach, where in 1991, he led Long Beach to a spot in the College World Series. He pitched for fifteen years in the major leagues starting with the Chicago Cubs in 1993. Trachsel was nicknamed “The Human Rain Delay” for the long amount of time he took to deliver a baseball to home plate between pitches. He was named to the Major League Baseball All-Star Game and posted a career-best 3.03 ERA in 1996.
