More than 12,000 fans packed the stadium today, that's double the normal crowd for an end of the week afternoon game. All of the hype was to see Stephen Strasburg. Sports Analysts say Strasburg is the best minor leaguer in the country. And today fans say they wouldn't miss seeing the pitching phenom in action!

Today Strasburg carried Syracuse to victory, pitching five scoreless innings, he gave up three hits, and struck out five.

This is Strasburg's last minor league game. He'll make his major league debut for the Washington Nationals against the Pittsburgh Pirates on Tuesday. Some tickets for that game are going for as much as $2,000.
