ANAHEIM, Calif. — Gary DiSarcina has been named the Los Angeles Angels‘ third-base coach.
Manager Mike Scioscia hired the longtime Angels shortstop on Tuesday.
DiSarcina replaces Dino Ebel, who was promoted to bench coach in a shake-up of Scioscia’s staff.
DiSarcina managed Boston’s Triple-A affiliate in Pawtucket last season, advancing to the International League’s championship series.
He spent 2011 and 2012 working in the Angels organization.
DiSarcina spent his entire 12-year playing career with the Angels, appearing at shortstop in 1,069 of his 1,086 career games, seventh-most in club history. A 1995 All-Star, he batted .258 with 28 homers and 355 RBIs in his career.
You heard right, Gary DiSarcina. It’s not that important, he’s just the 3rd base coach and he only hit 28 dingers his whole career. That will piss Kent Murphy right off. But it’s Gary DiSarcina. It probably means more to Angels fans since he played his whole career there, but that’s a great 90’s baseball name. If you are a real baseball fan, you know what I’m talking about. The 90’s were glorious and filled with badass names like:
If you get a second between calling me a fuckface, give me your best 90’s baseball player name and also any links to boobs you think I should see.
