Preseason All-American baseball honors for Stanford

 

Stanford juniors Tommy Edman and Cal Quantrill were named third-team preseason All-Americans by Baseball America on Monday.

Quantrill, who earned the same accolade last year and was also named a third-team All-American nominee by Collegiate Baseball News this season, began the 2015 season at 2-0 with a 1.93 ERA prior to missing the remainder of the season due to injury. He was 7-5 with a 2.68 ERA and an All-Pac-12 honoree as a freshman.

Eman was the only Cardinal to start every game last season and finished with a team-high 29 RBI, 13 doubles, 22 multi-hit games, and was third on the team with a .296 average.

Baseball America annually polls major league organizations' scouting departments to vote on the team and make their selections based on performance, talent and professional potential.

Individual and season tickets as well as mini-plans are now on sale. Season tickets and mini-plans are the only way to guarantee your seats at Fireworks Night on Friday, May 27.

Klein Field at Sunken Diamond received several enhancements this offseason, including a new playing surface, entrance, clubhouse, concessions, restrooms and Hall of Honor.

The Cardinal open the 2016 season at home on Feb. 19 against Cal State Fullerton.
