			Stanford baseball coach becomes fourth in Division I history with 1,600 wins

Stanford coach Mark Marquess joined the company of just three other NCAA Division 1 coaches Tuesday.

Marquess registered his 1,600th victory as a college coach — something only two others have done with the same program — with the No. 20 Cardinal’s 8-4 home win over rival Cal.

“It’s special,” Marquess said in a statement. “I’ve been very fortunate to be at one place all this time, which is great. But the coaches don’t play, the players play. I’ve been very fortunate that we’ve had great players come here and I’m very proud of that. It’s really about the players. There are so many that went into those wins, a lot of them sitting in the dugout here. I’m just very blessed, very fortunate.”

Marquess announced before the season, his 41st at Stanford, that this would be his last year at the helm.

Marquess has won 629 conference games, 154 games against Cal, 131 postseason games and 36 College World Series games, which includes two national championships (1987 and ’88).

Tuesday’s scoring for No. 20 Stanford (15-9) all came in the fourth inning.
