Paras Makes Full Recovery From PCL Sprain

Brian Paras injured his knee during the 2005 season during a game in early April. The injury occurred while he was pivoting on the basepath and felt a "pop" in his left knee. He was diagnosed with a grade 2 posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) injury. This injury is very rare in athletics and particularly in baseball. Brian's injury was managed conservatively with rehab. He completed rehab with Stockton Athletic Training for the remainder of the season. "While we were not able to get him back for the 2005 ECAC Playoffs in May, Brian was cleared for full activity as of July 1, 2005." commented Jon Heck Coordinator of Athletic Training.

Paras completed the fall baseball season without incident regarding his knee injury. He has not needed any additional rehab. His biggest problem this year has been a sprained ankle that occurred outside of athletics on 1/15/06. So far in the 2006 season with 5 games played Paras is batting .278 with 4 runs and 2 RBI. The team leaves for Florida today for spring break and 9 games.
