The 1953 Stanford baseball team held their 60 year reunion on Sunday. 17 former players showed up to honor the team that put Stanford baseball on the map.

They were the first Stanford baseball team to make it the College World Series.

Back then the University of Southern California was the cream of the crop but Stanford beat the Trojans four straight times, which was a big milestone.

Their season and title hopes ended with a loss to the eventual champion Michigan Wolverines.

Nine of the team's former players went on to play professional baseball but the 80-year-olds will never forget their time on The Farm.
