Garko Named to CWS Legends Team

May 6, 2010

OMAHA, Neb.-- Former Stanford star and current major leaguer Ryan Garko was one of the 28 players selected to be a part of the College World Series Legends Team, to be honored during the 2010 championship series at Rosenblatt Stadium. Garko was one of two catchers selected, joining South Carolina's Landon Powell.

Garko, currently playing for the Rangers, starred for the Cardinal during Stanford's three-straight CWS seasons in 2001, 2003 and 2003. He finished his Stanford career ninth all-time in batting (.350), fifth in doubles (60), ninth in homers (39) and seventh in RBIs (191) over a four-year career.

He was a third round pick of the Indians in 2003, making his major league debut two seasons later.

The Initial list was pared down from 95 nominees, were selected after more than 100,000 votes were cast by college baseball fans, college baseball writers and Division I head baseball coaches. The members of the Legends Team are former student-athletes and coaches who had the best CWS performances throughout the 60 years the event has been played at Rosenblatt Stadium
