TheBootleg.com proudly presents an exclusive two-part (eight-segment!) audio interview with record-setting former Stanford slugger Eric Hardgrave, the 1983 Pac-10 Conference Southern Division Player of the Year and a First-Team All-American. This casual conversation with "Emeritus", recorded on the afternoon of June 11, 2008, is published today in celebration of the 25th Anniversary of Stanford's appearance in the 1983 College World Series. Get a fresh cup of coffee, sit back and enjoy the reminiscence of one of the greatest players ever to wear the Cardinal and White, one of the many talented student-athletes that helped forge the very foundation of Stanford's success in college baseball. We think you will enjoy this walk down memory lane with this proud member of the Stanford Athletic Hall of Fame who, remarkably, has done even more off the field for his alma mater than he did on the field. OK, have we embarrassed Hardgrave enough? As you will see, Eric is a very humble and self-deprecating guy, so it is our job to make sure he is appropriately recognized for his many contributions to the program!
