Stowers was waiting in the on-deck circle during the Cardinal’s game against Fresno State when he was greeted by his teammates. It was also Stanford’s final home game of the season.
Stanford won the game and advanced to play Mississippi State in the super regional.
Stowers, a junior, hit .305 with a .890 OPS to go along with eight homers during the 2019 season.
He joins a loaded Orioles draft class that already included Oregon State catcher Adley Rutschman, LSU outfielder Zach Watson and high school shortstop Gunnar Henderson.
