Looking back on my time at Stanford, I can confidently say that nothing has shaped my experience as much as The Stanford Daily. And knowing I’m about to leave the place that has determined my career trajectory, given me some of my closest friends and made me into the person I am today scares me more than leaving Stanford itself.
Two years in a row, Stanford hosted Cal State Fullerton in its regional of the NCAA Tournament. Two years in a row, the Titans eliminated nationally-seeded Cardinal teams from postseason contention, won the Stanford Regional and advanced to the Super Regional. Except this year — with one of the best Stanford teams in recent memory, one…
It’s always Fullerton, isn’t it? For two straight years, Fullerton has been the thorn in Stanford’s side in its regional, last year beating the Cardinal twice to eliminate them from the postseason and this year handing Stanford its first loss of the regional on Saturday night. And the loss came about in a particularly painful…
Beau Branton’s breakout season wasn’t supposed to happen. First-team All-Pac-12 second baseman Duke Kinamon was slotted in to play second this year — until he went down with a groin injury in warmups minutes before the first pitch of the season. Even then, Jesse Kuet got the first crack at taking Kinamon’s place. But not the last.
Stanford baseball hosts an NCAA Regional after earning a top-16 national seed. The three teams invited to the regional are the Baylor Bears, Cal State Fullerton Titans and Wright State Raiders.
Stanford baseball has earned a national seed for the second year in a row after a historic 2018 season under first-year head coach David Esquer. The No. 2 overall seed in the NCAA Tournament and the 22-8 conference record speak for themselves, but some of the other numbers that emerged from Stanford’s season tell the story of just how particularly special Stanford’s 2018 regular season was.
Behind a multi-hit effort from three Cardinal hitters, including a 4-for-4, three-RBI performance from senior second baseman Beau Branton, No. 3 Stanford (41-8, 19-6-0 Pac-12) dominated in Game 1 of its final home series of the regular season, earning a 10-1 win against Washington State (15-29-1, 7-17-1) Friday night at Sunken Diamond.
For the second year in a row, No. 3 Stanford (40-8) completed its midweek-game slate undefeated, sealing a 9-0 record in such contests with a 5-1 victory Tuesday afternoon at home against BYU (21-26).
Stanford’s midweek game against Santa Clara might have been effectively over by the top of the sixth, but that didn’t stop some sparks from flying between opposing teams — and some familiar faces.
Though originally advertised as a “co-op,” the fraternity's house will operate as a “self-op,” and will retain its chef next year.
In the 2018-2019 school year, the Sigma Chi house will become a tier-three residence and allow non-members to live in its Mayfield Avenue house. The change follows the conclusion of an investigation by Sigma Chi International during which the fraternity was barred from participating in spring recruitment, leaving them without a 2018 pledge class.
Almost exactly two years after being thrust into the national spotlight for sentencing Brock Turner to what many considered an unacceptably lenient sentence, Santa Clara County Superior Court Judge Aaron Persky ’84 M.A. ’85 will face the June 5 countywide vote that could remove him from the bench.
After being widely criticized for what many considered an overly lenient sentence for Brock Turner, Judge Aaron Persky ’84 M.A. ’85 faces what his supporters, such as retired Santa Clara County Superior Court judge LaDoris Cordell, admit is an uphill battle in countering the highly visible campaign to recall him from the Santa Clara County Superior Court.
Once the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors officially placed Judge Aaron Persky’s recall on the June 5, 2018 ballot, Angela Storey, a civil attorney based in San Jose, entered the race to replace Persky in the event of a successful recall.
Cindy Hendrickson '87, one of the six assistant district attorneys (DA) on DA Jeff Rosen’s executive team, announced her intent to run for Judge Aaron Persky’s seat last spring, before the recall was officially placed on the ballot.
In light of recent demonstrations held by high school students advocating for gun reform, Stanford has assured current and future applicants that the University will not consider students’ choice to participate in protests during the application review process.
Following an alleged drugging incident last month by a non-Stanford student at an event hosted by Sigma Chi, the alumni organization that owns the Sigma Chi house says it will ban alcohol from the house completely starting this April and has restricted social events that can be hosted there.
Stanford Professor of Medicine Dean Winslow was set to become the Pentagon’s top health official for the Trump administration. Then he gave senators his opinion on civilian access to semiautomatic assault rifles.

On Nov. 20, 1982, California shocked Stanford on a last-second miracle that is remembered to this day as one of the most iconic moments in college football history. After Stanford kicked a last-minute field goal to go up 20-19, Cal returned a kickoff for a touchdown with time expiring on a play that involved five…
On Sept. 19, 1892, John C. Capron, Carl S. Smith and John A. Keating, the first editors of The Daily Palo Alto — the precursor to The Stanford Daily — articulated their vision for their brand-new news organization, a year after Stanford’s founding. “True it is that the daily will not make a great university,…
To this day, I don’t know why the managing editor of The Stanford Daily gave a freshman reporter the assignment, but in April 1967, the editor summoned me to his office. “Martin Luther King is speaking at Stanford tomorrow,” he told me. “King has agreed to do an interview with The Daily on the ride…
