The Cardinal baseball team of 1896.

The Stanford Cardinal baseball team represents Stanford University in NCAA Division I college baseball. Along with most other Stanford athletic teams, the baseball team participates in the Pac-12 Conference. The Cardinal play their home games on campus at Klein Field at Sunken Diamond, and they are currently coached by David Esquer.

Stadium

Klein Field at Sunken Diamond is one of the premier collegiate baseball stadiums in the country. When the football stadium was originally built in 1921, dirt was excavated from the site of the future baseball stadium, which created a "sunken" field a decade later.

Stanford in the NCAA Tournament

The Cardinal have appeared in the NCAA Division I Baseball Tournament 31 times, and appearing in the College World Series 16 times. They have won two National Championships, in 1987 College World Series and 1988.

Future major league outfielder Sam Fuld's 24 career hits broke the College World Series record of 23 set by Keith Moreland in 1973-75.[2][3]

Former Cardinal in MLB

Former NFL Quarterback and current Denver Broncos executive John Elway also played baseball at Stanford for two seasons.
