Angels Name Former-Player Gary DiSarcina As New Third Base Coach

Although the career is probably only remembered by die-hard Angels fans, the Los Angeles Angels announced today that another alumni player would return to the team for a coaching position, Gary DiSarcina.

The high-stirruped shortstop spent last season managing the Boston Red Sox Triple-A affiliate, Pawtucket Red Sox where he lead them to an 80-63 record. In the playoffs, Pawtucket made it all the way to the Governors’ Cup, where they fell to the Durham Bulls.

Prior to last season, DiSarcina for three seasons with the Lowell Spinners. His total combined record as a manager in the minor leagues is 205-162.

DiSarcina also has spent some time with the Los Angeles Angels organization over the last few years. In 2011 and 2012, DiSarcina was named the Field Coordinator or Player Instruction in the Angels farm system.

DiSarcina will be taking place of the recently promoted Dino Ebel, who will now be the Angels Bench Coach. DiSarcina joins Don Baylor (Hitting Coach) as another new member to the coaching staff that is also an alumni player of the club.
