The 2012 California Golden Bears baseball team is the representative of the University of California, Berkeley in the 2012 NCAA Division I baseball season. The team plays their home games in Evans Diamond. They will enter the 2012 season after making the 2011 College World Series with a 35–21 record in 2011 and making the postseason three of the last four years.

Previous season[edit]

California finished the 2011 regular season as the #6 team in the Pacific-12 Conference with a 25–21 record, and made it to the 2011 College World Series finishing tied for 5th place. The program also staved off elimination as a varsity program in 2011 by raising approximately 10 million dollars in a little more than a month. The funds raised were able to keep the California baseball program running and set up the Cal Baseball Foundation to try and keep the program running into perpetuity. The university also had planned to eliminate Rugby, Men's and Women's Gymnastics, and Women's Lacrosse, but enough funds were raised to save those programs as well.

Schedule[edit]

The season for California will begin on Friday, February 17 with a home game against Pacific with a three game series, two of which will be in Berkeley. Their longest home stand will be from March 13–22, and May 11–20 (8 home games), and their longest road trip was from March 20-April 7 (12 road games). Their final game of the regular season will be on Saturday, May 27 in Palo Alto against arch-rival Stanford. In 2011, the California Golden Bears baseball team won an at-large berth to the 2011 NCAA Division I Baseball Tournament and advanced to the Super Regionals. California then swept Dallas Baptist in Santa Clara to clinch a berth to the College World Series for the first time since 1992. The Bears will look to repeat and build upon that success in 2012.
