Former Stanford and major league player Ryan Garko has been added to the Stanford baseball staff as an assistant, coach Mark Marquess announced Monday.
Garko, a 2003 Stanford graduate, joins his alma mater after a 10-year pro baseball career, including five in the majors with the Cleveland Indians, Giants (2009) and Texas Rangers.
Garko, 32, will fill the void left by Dean Stotz after the longtime Stanford assistant retired after 37 seasons. Garko hit .275 in 463 career games, playing primarily at first base.
