Pac-10 Honors 10 Stanford Players On All-Academic Baseball Team
May 26, 2004
Walnut Creek, Calif. - The Pac-10 honored a total of 10 Stanford players on the Pac-10 All-Academic Baseball Team on Wednesday. To be eligible for selection, a student-athlete must have a minimum 3.0 overall grade point average and be either a starter of significant contributor. Chris Minaker (3.69 GPA, Undeclared) and Mark Romanczuk (3.53 GPA, Undeclared) earned First Team honors. Matt Manship (3.48 GPA, Undeclared), David O'Hagan (3.13 GPA, Political Science) and Danny Putnam (3.26 GPA, Sociology) were named to the Second Team. Jonny Ash (3.01 GPA, Political Science), Chris Carter (3.17 GPA, Human Biology), Jeff Gilmore (3.00, Undeclared), Sam Fuld (3.13 GPA, Economics) and Brian Hall (3.07 GPA, Political Science/Sociology) earned Honorable Mention recognition.
Stanford will conclude its 2004 regular season schedule with a three-game home series versus No. 19 Arizona State (Friday-Sunday, May 28-30, 6 pm, 1 pm, 1 pm, PDT) with the Sixth Annual Town & Country Village Fireworks Show scheduled to take place after Friday's series-opener.
Stanford heads into the series needing to win two-of-three against Arizona State to pick up its second consecutive outright Pac-10 title. The Sun Devils had won 11 in a row before falling 13-7 at Arizona last Sunday. One Stanford win in the series would assure the Cardinal of at least a share of the conference championship with Washington. Arizona State (39-14, 12-9 Pac-10) is currently tied for third-place in the Pac-10 with UCLA (31-26, 12-9 Pac-10) and would need a sweep of the Cardinal to gain a piece of the Pac-10 title. UCLA, who plays at Oregon State in its final regular season series this Friday-Sunday, could still earn a share of the Pac-10 title with a sweep of the Beavers if Arizona State wins at least two games against the Cardinal.
