Three Named All-Region

STANFORD, Calif. – Kris Bubic, Nico Hoerner and Jack Little were each named first-team All-West Region by the American Baseball Coaches Association, as announced Wednesday.

The trio helped the Cardinal (46-12) achieve its second highest winning percentage (.793) in program history and capture its first Pac-12 Conference Championship since 2004. Stanford's 46 wins tie for 10th-most in program history, while its 12 losses tie for the fewest in program history (min. 50 games).

Bubic, a left-handed pitcher from San Jose, California, was named All-Pac-12 and an NCBWA third-team All-American after posting an 8-1 record and 2.62 earned-run average in 86.0 innings. He led the team with 101 strikeouts, holding opposing hitters to a .199 average. Bubic was picked 40th overall in the Competitive Balance Round-A by the Kansas City Royals in the recent Major League Baseball Draft.

Hoerner, a native of Oakland, was an All-Pac-12 selection for the second straight season after batting .345 with 17 doubles, 40 RBI and a team-high 45 runs. Hoerner ranked second on the team with 115 total bases, starting all 57 games he appeared in. Hoerner was drafted 24th overall in the first round of the MLB Draft by the Chicago Cubs.

Little, who hails from Las Vegas, ties for third in the NCAA and leads the Pac-12 with 16 saves, a single-season program record shared with Colton Hock (2017). Little (3-0) accrued a 0.60 earned-run average and a .167 opposing batting average. Surrendering just 38 base runners, he struck out 58 while issuing eight walks in 45.1 innings across 25 relief appearances. Little was also named first-team All-America by Baseball America, D1 Baseball, Perfect Game and NCBWA.
