Palo Alto High grad Nathan Ford was a unanimous selection to the All-Ivy League baseball first team as a third baseman.

Ford earned first-team all-league honors as a third baseman a year after being selected as a utility player. He batted .366 in league play to lead all third basemen, and hit four of his nine home runs during the 20-game Ivy League slate. His .606 slugging percentage in Ivy League play was more than 100 points higher than the next closest player, Dartmouth's Nick Santopadre. Ford batted .370 on the season with 32 runs scored and 36 driven in while starting in all 40 games.

Menlo-Atherton High grad Dominic Di Ricco hit .231 with three home runs and 21 RBI for the Big Red, starting 39 of the 40 games.
