STANFORD JUMPS TWO SPOTS TO NO. 7 IN BASEBALL AMERICA POLL
Stanford jumped two spots to No. 7 in this week's Baseball America poll released May 6 after sweeping California in a three-game series last weekend. Stanford had fallen four spots to a season-low No. 9 in the previous Baseball America poll after dropping two-of-three games in back-to-back series at Washington and Oregon State the previous two weekends. Stanford currently ranks No. 7 (Baseball Weekly/ESPN) and No. 9 (Collegiate Baseball, NCBWA) in the three other major national polls. Stanford began the season as the nation's unanimous No. 1 team and stayed on top of the Baseball America poll for the first seven weeks of the year before falling out of the top spot for the first time on April 1. Stanford spent two weeks (4/9 - 4/16) last year as the nation's unanimous No. 1 team and six weeks as Baseball America's top team (3/12 - 4/16) before finishing the year at No. 2 in all four polls. Stanford has been ranked No. 1 at one point during each of the past six years (including 2002). Stanford's poll history includes a run as 'king of the polls' in 1998 when the team held the top spot in the Baseball America poll for the entire regular season (a record 14 consecutive weeks). USC (No. 20 Baseball America, No. 25 Baseball Weekly/ESPN, No. 18 Collegiate Baseball, No. 23 NCBWA), Arizona State (No. 19 Baseball Weekly/ESPN, No. 24 NCBWA) and Oregon State (No. 35 NCBWA) are the other ranked Pac-10 teams.

APRIL SHOWERS BRING MAY FLOWERS
For the second consecutive season, the Cardinal struggled in the second half of April before playing well in May. Last year, the team struggled to a 3-5 record during its eight games in the second half of April before going 12-3 in May. This year, the team finished at 4-4 after the tax deadline and is 4-1 in its first five games of May.

TOP OF THE PAC
Stanford is currently in a third place tie in the Pac-10 standings and trying to keep alive its string of eight consecutive finishes among the top two in the conference standings (includes Pac-10 Southern Division). The Cardinal is attempting to finish either first or second in the league standings for the 20th time in the last 22 years with the only blemishes over that time period a fourth place finish in 1989 and a sixth place showing in 1993. With a current 9-6 conference record, Stanford is 2.0 games behind league leader USC (11-4 Pac-10 and 1.0 games behind second place Washington (10-5 Pac-10).

STANFORD HEAD COACH MARK MARQUESS
One of the nation's premier collegiate coaches, Mark Marquess is in his 26th season at the helm of Stanford Baseball in 2002. Marquess has a career record of 1079-528-5 (.671), all at Stanford. Marquess coached his 1600th game at Stanford this season in a 19-2 win over Saint Mary's (4/16). Last year, he became the 23rd coach in the history of NCAA Division I baseball to reach the 1000-win mark with a 6-2 victory over Florida State in a game played on February 9, 2001. The 1969 Stanford graduate has led the Cardinal to two NCAA titles (1987, '88) and two other CWS title game appearances (2000, '01), as well as 11 College World Series appearances (1982, '83, '85, '87, '88, '90, '95, '97, '99, 2000, '01), 11 NCAA Regional titles (1982, '83, '85, '87, '88, '90, '95, '97, '99, 2000, '01), 10 Pac-10 or Pac-10 Southern Division regular season titles (1983, '84, '85, '87, '90, '94, '97, '98, '99, 2000) and three NCAA Super Regional championships (1999, 2000, '01). The Cardinal has qualified for the NCAA Tournament 19 times under Marquess. He began the 2002 season ranked 12th in victories and 16th in winning percentage among active Division I baseball coaches, while ranking 23rd on the all-time victory list and 42nd on the all-time winning percentage list. He has been named NCAA Coach of the Year three times (1985, '87, '88) and has received Pac-10 or Pac-10 Southern Division Coach of the Year honors on eight occasions (1983, '85, '87, '90, '94, '97, '98, '99). The Cardinal has posted winning seasons 25 times in 26 years under his leadership (includes this season) and has finished either first or second in the prestigious Pacific-10 (formerly Pac-10 Southern Division) 19 times in the last 21 years. Stanford has had 99 professional baseball draft picks in the past 17 seasons, including 12 first round selections in the last 15 years. A member of the American Baseball Coaches Association Hall of Fame, Marquess was the head coach of the 1988 United States Olympic baseball team that captured the gold medal. Marquess was also an accomplished football and baseball standout on The Farm and is a member of the Stanford Athletic Hall of Fame. He is one of only six collegiate baseball head coaches to have both played and coached in the College World Series. Marquess was the starting first baseman and a First Team All-American on Stanford's 1967 College World Series squad and played four seasons of minor league baseball with the Chicago White Sox organization.

COMMENTS FROM MARK MARQUESS
(on the upcoming Arizona State series) 'It's been so long since we've played Arizona State, but I know they have a good team.'

(on sweeping California) 'It was huge for us to sweep California because it put us back in the hunt with four other teams for the league title and gives us a realistic shot.'

(on starting to settle on the lineup) 'We're pretty set, but I still have a little bit of flexibility because a lot of different guys play a lot of different positions.'

(on Sam Fuld's current streak) 'He's improved a lot as a hitter. He can do so many things -- hit with power, hit for average, bunt. He's just a tough out right now.'

(on the big crowds at Sunken Diamond) 'We've had great crowds and great fan support at Sunken Diamond.'

(on the Pac-10 race) 'USC has moved out in front of everybody else a little bit but there are still a lot of teams still involved in battling for a championship. It should be a good race for the title and the next couple of spots in the standings right up until the end of league play.'

(on playing three of the final four Pac-10 series at home) 'We hope that playing a bunch of home games over the final four weeks of the season will work in our favor. We've traditionally played well at home and hope to continue that in the next four weeks.'

(on the balance in the Pac-10) 'Anybody is capable of beating another Pac-10 team in a series. All the teams have enough talent to do that. The league is very unpredictable. The team that's going to win the league is one that can get a couple of sweeps and not get swept, but that will be difficult to do. I would be surprised if anybody ran away with the league title.'

STANFORD COACHING STAFF
Dean Stotz is in his 26th campaign with Stanford Baseball and his third season as associate head coach after he was promoted to the position prior to the 2000 campaign. Stotz served for 23 years as an assistant. Stotz currently coaches third base while also handling various offensive and defensive aspects of the game.
