Letters of Intent
STANFORD, Calif. — Sophomore pitcher Cal Quantrill has been named to the Perfect Game Preseason All-America Second Team and the Louisville Slugger Preseason All-America Third Team.
The reigning Pac-12 Freshman of the Year was a Louisville Slugger Freshman All-American in 2014.
Quantrill (Port Hope, Ont.) made his mark as one of the top freshmen in the country during Stanford’s improbable Super Regional run last season. He was named to the Bloomington Regional All-Tournament Team after earning the win in the clinching victory over Indiana, then threw seveninnings (6 H, 3 R, 2 ER) in a no-decision against eventual national champion Vanderbilt during the Super Regional.
The management science and engineering major led the Cardinal in innings (110 2/3 innings) and strikeouts (98) after becoming the first Stanford freshman to start opening day since Mike Mussina in 1988.
Only five of the 29 other Louisville Slugger All-America starting pitchers struck out more than Quantrill did in 2014 and four of those hurlers are on the first team.
Stanford opens its season Friday, Feb. 13 against Indiana on Pac-12 Networks.
