This is home for Ramona Shelburne

Summer 2014 – The morning’s LA Times was scattered across the kitchen table, but Jeanette Shelburne wasn’t interested in any section of the local paper. She sat at the countertop with the laptop open and a cup of warm joe in a Stanford mug just within reach. A feature story awaited her attention: “LeBron James…

Marquess and Garrido: Winning traditions between old friends

Whenever the Texas Longhorns take a road trip to Stanford, Augie Garrido steps off the plane in San Francisco and heads to Palo Alto. The Vallejo native is less than 65 miles from home, but playing on the Farm is far from a homecoming game for Garrido. “It’s no homecoming because I haven’t looked at…

Softball blog: Game-day Lang

With three outs to go before the end of the final game of the Stanford Nike Invitational this past weekend, we found ourselves short of energy, low on luck and down on runs. A bottom of the seventh, game-winning comeback after trailing the Cal Poly Mustangs by a score of 4-0 seemed unattainable. After all,…
