Stanford baseball had top summer prospects


The Stanford baseball program had seven players -- the most in college baseball -- ranked among Baseball America's top summer prospects.

Menlo School grad Kenny Diekroeger (New England), Chris Reed (Atlantic Collegiate League) and Jake Stewart (Alaska) were all rated as the top prospects in their respective leagues, joining Mark Appel (NECBL), Eric Smith (Atlantic), Stephen Piscotty (Alaska) and Brett Mooneyham (Team USA).

Appel was rated as the the No. 2 prospect in the NECBL behind Diekroeger, while both Smith and Piscotty were the No. 3 prospects in their respective leagues.

The Pac-10 Conference had the most players listed, 30, spread across 18 summer leagues. Six Pac-10 players were No. 1, half of whom came from Stanford.

Stanford will host its annual alumni weekend on October 23-24 as part of Homecoming, with the alumni game taking place on Sunday at 1 p.m at Sunken Diamond.

Stanford baseball also announced the hiring of former San Diego State standout, Brock Ungricht, as the team's volunteer assistant.
