Larry Casian saw the same scene unfold every week during his senior season at Cal State Fullerton in 1987. Mike Harkey would take the mound, and scouts, from their customary spots behind the backstop, would hold a vigil to velocity. "All you saw were radar guns," Casian said. "Guys would say, 'I got 92!' or 'I got 93!' It was like a carnival. 'Look what this guy is throwing!' " When Casian took the mound for the Titans, the guns would go back to their holsters.
