Shawn Estes, a 6-foot-2 left-handed pitcher from Douglas High in Minden, Nev., is perhaps the most celebrated player on the West team.
Estes, 18, was the Seattle Mariners' first-round pick in the June amateur draft and the 11th player chosen overall. In his senior year, Estes pitched a no-hitter and had an 8-2 record with an 0.80 earned-run average. He was named the Nevada player of the year.
The Mariners have not been able to sign Estes, who is holding out for a reported $450,000 bonus. Stanford also has offered Estes, who had a 4.0 grade-point average, a four-year scholarship.
