Baseball: It's a homecoming for Rob Rasmussen

December 20, 2012 |  8:27 am

No one is going to have a happier holiday season than former Pasadena Poly and UCLA pitcher Rob Rasmussen, who was traded by the Houston Astros to the Dodgers.

As Rasmussen said on Twitter: "For a kid who lived 10 minutes from the stadium, and saw the likes of Piazza and Nomo, I couldn't be happier than I've been all day today."

Rasmussen, a left-hander, will do well at Dodger Stadium and elsewhere.
