COMPLETE BASEBALL AMERICA RELEASE
“Aaron is probably one of the most talented overall athletes we’ve ever had here at Pepperdine, on the mound, in the outfield and at the plate,” Pepperdine head coach Steve Rodriguez said. “We’re looking forward to seeing what he does this year and what kind of production he has for us on the mound and at the plate.”
Brown capped his first season of collegiate baseball with a relief victory in the Stanford Regional against Fresno State (6/3/12), posting three strikeouts in 2.1 innings. In his first postseason, Brown recorded five strikeouts in 4.0 innings without issuing a walk.
Brown is one of three WCC representatives on the All-American teams, joining first team selections Kris Bryant (San Diego) and Marco Gonzalez (Gonzaga).
Pepperdine opens the 2013 season when it hosts Western Michigan in a four-game series beginning Friday, February 15. First pitch against the Broncos is set for 2:00 p.m. at Eddy D. Field Stadium in a contest featuring live video via WaveCasts.
