March 28, 2001
STANFORD, Calif. - On Thursday at 10:30 a.m. PT, Stanford freshman outfielder Carlos Quentin will make a special visit to the GoStanford.com/ESPN.com moderated chat room to field questions from the fans!
The Stanford baseball squad has been the nation's No. 1 team for the last three weeks in the Baseball America poll and moved to the top of the Collegiate Baseball this past Monday. Stanford is ranked second behind Rice in the Baseball Weekly/ESPN poll. The Cardinal (22-5, 3-0 Pac-10) sits in sole possession of first place in the Pac-10 and heads to Arizona State for a key three-game conference series this Friday-Sunday.
Quentin leads the team with a .357 batting average and has been on a tear over his last 12 games with a .500 batting average (21-42), two doubles, two homers, 13 RBI, 14 runs scored and a pair of stolen bases over the stretch. He has hit safely in 11 of those 12 games. Quentin, who recently moved into the club's cleanup spot in the lineup, has season totals of three homers and 18 RBI.
A native of Chula Vista, CA, Quentin came to Stanford with a great deal of baseball experience, including a stint on the USA Junior National Team in the summer of 1999. As a three-sport prep athlete (football, basketball, baseball) at University of San Diego High School, Quentin was named the San Diego Athlete of the Year in 2000.
While Carlos will not be stopping by until 10:30 a.m. PT on Thursday, please feel free to fire off your questions now and we will save them for his arrival.
