The California Golden Bears baseball team represents the University of California in NCAA Division I college baseball. Along with most other California athletic teams, the baseball team participates in the Pacific-12 Conference. The Bears play their home games at Evans Diamond, and they are currently coached by David Esquer.

History[edit]

The Bears have appeared in the NCAA Division I Baseball Tournament 12 times, and in the College World Series 6 times. They have won two National Championships: at the first College World Series in 1947 and again in 1957.

In 2010, the university announced that baseball would be one of five sports cut as a cost-cutting measure.[1] However, in April 2011, after receiving more than $9 million in pledges from supporters of the program, the program was reinstated.[2] Even donors from Stanford University, California's biggest rival, pitched in to help save the Golden Bears baseball team.[3]
