  • Stanford will look to veterans to carry load in super regionals

    For the first time since 2008, the Stanford baseball team will be playing in the NCAA super regionals beginning Friday, and for much of the team, it will be a new experience in North Carolina. “I’ve always felt if you’re going to be successful in league play or postseason play or even the College World Series, you better have someone that’s been there before because it’s different,” Stanford coach Mark Marquess said. “That senior leadership is critical if you wanted to be successful when you go into something new. “Freshmen eyes are really big, they don’t know what to expect.” Seniors Zach Jones, Danny Sandbrink and Ben Clowe were all on the 2008 Stanford team that advanced not only to the super regionals, but to the College World Series, and their experiences should help the Cardinal mentally prepare.
