Hinch ’96 and general manager Jeff Luhnow for a year following an MLB investigation into accusations that the team used sign-stealing during the 2017 World Series-winning season and part of the 2018 season.

Men’s basketball (11-2, 0-0 Pac-12) opens conference play Thursday night at home against cross-bay rival Cal (6-7, 0-0 Pac-12).

On December 29th, the men’s basketball team (11-1, 0-0 Pac-12) will take on No. 5 Kansas (9-2, Big 12) in its biggest matchup of the year. Stanford is off to its best start since 2008. If the Cardinal manage to pull off an upset, they will be 12-1 for the first time since 2003, which was the last time they were ranked No. 1 overall. In 2003, Stanford beat Kansas, who was the top-ranked team at the time.
The men’s basketball team (3-0, 0-0 Pac-12) takes on Santa Clara (3-0, 0-0 WCC) in a battle of two undefeated programs at Maples on Saturday.

This is the fourth of six home games for the Cardinal in a 16-day period.
Stanford women's basketball opens the season against Eastern Washington on Tuesday night. Despite the departure of WBNA first-round pick Alanna Smith, the Cardinal women return a strong cohort of talent that make this team worthy of the preseason No. 3 ranking.
This weekend, the No. 10 men’s swimming and diving (0-0, 0-0 Pac-12) team will compete in their first meet of the season at the University of Pacific Invite in Stockton, CA. While there is a lot to like about this Cardinal team, the biggest topic of discussion is how the team will deal with the retirement of former head coach Ted Knapp and the graduation of key members like Abrahm DeVine and Brad Zdroik. This meet provides a first glance as to which swimmers will step up this season and how the team performs under new head coach Dan Schemmel.
This weekend, the No.1 Stanford men’s water polo team (12-1, 0-0 MPSF) hits the road for two games, first on Saturday at No. 8 Long Beach State (10-7, 0-0 GGC) and then on Sunday at No. 13 UC-Irvine (6-6, 0-0 GGC).

Friday marks an exciting day for Stanford athletics because for the first time since 2013, the softball team (32-18, 8-13 Pac-12) will be competing in the postseason. After years of rebuild and mediocrity, the team is finally one of the most exciting to watch amongst Stanford sports.
This weekend was a predictably tough one for the softball team (32-18, 8-13 Pac-12) as they were swept on the road against the No. 2 University of Washington (45-7, 20-4 Pac-12). The light at the end of the tunnel, however, was Sunday's NCAA softball tournament announcement that Stanford had qualified for postseason play. If the Cardinal are going to advance to the Super Regionals, though, they will have to play better than they did this weekend.
Tonight softball (32-15, 8-10 Pac-12) begins their final regular season series at No. 2 Washington (42-7, 17-4 Pac-12) in yet another difficult conference rivalry matchup.

It was a bittersweet weekend for the Cardinal softball team (32-15, 8-10 Pac-12) in their last home series of the season. Stanford upset No. 2 UCLA (45-3, 19-2 Pac-12) on Friday but then fell to the Bruins on Saturday and Sunday.

This weekend, the softball team (31-10, 7-5 Pac-12) hosts Arizona State (25-17, 5-10 Pac-12) in a three-day series that could launch Stanford into the elite echelon of the conference.
