The 2008 California baseball team, under the direction of head coach David Esquer, definitely has earned its spot among the nation's elite this season. The Golden Bears are currently 33-19-2 overall and finished 12-12 in the Pac-10, arguably the toughest conference in the nation. The Golden Bears are ranked No. 17 in Collegiate Baseball and No. 20 in Baseball America and won Pac-10 series at Washington State, versus two-time defending national champions Oregon State, versus Washington, versus preseason No. 1-ranked Arizona and at No. 16-ranked Stanford. Cal is 13-7-1 versus ranked teams this season, including sweeping then-No. 5-ranked Long Beach State, Mar. 28-30, in Berkeley. Another highlight for the Bears is winning three of four games against ranked teams Feb. 28-Mar. 2 at the University of San Diego Tournament, including shutting out the host Torreros, 5-0, and winning nine-straight games from Mar. 1-15.

'We are extremely happy to be in the NCAA tournament,' said Esquer, whose Bears had a thrilling 7-6 10-inning victory over UCLA Sunday on Satin's game-winning home run. 'Our kids have worked hard all season and deserve to be in a regional. We are in as tough of a bracket as any in the tournament, but you are always going to have to defeat good teams to advance.'

In all, Cal captured seven series this season, as well as winning three of four games at the University of San Diego Tournament and sweeping all three games at the University of Minnesota Tournament in the Metrodome. The Bears are second in the Pac-10 with a .308 team batting average and are second in the league with 71 home runs. Cal also has several players ranked in the top 10 in the conference's statistical categories.

A quick thumbnail of the Bears' top players include:

Junior first baseman David Cooper is a semifinalist for the Dick Howser Trophy, USA Baseball's Golden Spikes Award and the Wallace Award as the national player of the year. Cooper is batting .363 with 14 doubles, 19 home runs (2nd in the Pac-10, 4th on Cal's single-season HR list) and 55 RBI (8th in Pac-10). He also has 55 runs (6th in Pac-10), a .698 slugging percentage (5th in Pac-10), a .455 on-base percentage (7th in Pac-10), 148 total bases (2nd in Pac-10), 37 walks (8th in Pac-10) and is fifth in the Pac-10 with 77 hits. Cooper was the Apr. 1 Pac-10 Player of the Week.

Cooper is a transfer from Cal State Fullerton, where as a freshman he was a member of the 2006 College World Series All-Tournament team. He flirted with a College World Series record with seven consecutive hits, tying Terry Francona (1980) and one short of Dave Magadan (1983) and Barry Bonds (1984). Cooper led all players at the 2006 World Series with a .533 average (8-for-15) with five RBI.

Senior second baseman Josh Satin is a semifinalist for USA Baseball's Golden Spikes Award and the Wallace Award as the national player of the year. Satin is batting .388 with 11 doubles, 18 home runs (5th in Pac-10) and 52 RBI. He is also sixth in the Pac-10 in total bases (140), 10th in hits (73), sixth in runs scored (55), fourth in slugging percentage (.745), third in walks (46) and second in on-base percentage (.508). Satin hit safely in the first 22 games this season and had a school-record a 27-game hitting streak from May 20, 2007-Mar. 29, 2008. He was the Mar. 4 Pac-10 Player of the Week.

Junior right-hander Tyson Ross is 7-3 with 4.40 ERA in 11 starts, and has 62 strikeouts in 71.2 innings. Ross has twice been selected as the Pac-10 Pitcher of the Week - Feb. 26 when he one-hit Kansas State, and Apr. 1 after defeating then-No. 5-ranked Long Beach State. He is projected to be a first-round draft pick in the June Major League Amateur Draft. Ross has 267 career strikeouts, third on the Cal all-time list. His match-up against San Diego's junior left-hander Brian Matusz (11-2, 1.88 ERA) is considered one of the nation's best match-up in regional competition.

Freshman right-hander Kevin Miller is 6-1 with a 2.56 ERA (1st in Pac-10) in 20 appearances (five starts) and has 67 strikeouts in 70.1 innings. Miller also leads the conference with an opponent batting average of .186. He started his college career not allowing an earned run in his first 44.0 innings and is on the Wallace Award Watch list.

Junior right-hander Matt Gorgen is 2-2 with a 3.20 ERA and nine saves (3rd in Pac-10, second on the Cal single-season save list) in 27 appearances (5th in Pac-10). Gorgen also has 42 strikeouts in 39.1 innings and opponents are batting .257. He was May 13 Pac-10 Pitcher of the Week and is on the watch list for the NCBWA Stopper of the Year Award. In 87 career appearances, Gorgen now has 151 strikeouts in 140.0 innings, and is second on Cal's career save list (20 saves, one behind Mitch Hawley, 21, 1978-81). His twin brother, Scott, is a standout starting pitcher for UC Irvine.

The Bears have several other compelling stories that have led to their successful 2008 season. Junior left fielder and team captain Charlie Cutler is batting .333 and had a game-winning RBI May 9 at Stanford. Cutler had started the season as Cal's catcher, but was out Feb. 23-Mar. 18 after breaking his little finger, and has come back to secure the left field position and the No. 2 spot in the batting order.

Sophomore center fielder Brett Jackson is batting .320 with seven doubles, four triples, four home runs and 40 RBI and also leads the Bears with 12 stolen bases. Jackson had a grand slam against Arizona this season. Sophomore right fielder/right handed reliever Blake Smith is another standout sophomore for Cal. Smith, who is batting .295 with 10 doubles, two triples, 11 home runs and 41 RBI, is also one of the Bears' top relievers. He is 3-0 with a 3.26 ERA on the mound, with 32 strikeouts in 19.1 innings. Smith hit a grand slam against Fresno State on Apr. 2. And, on May 25 against UCLA, hit two home runs and picked up the win in relief.

Yet another top sophomore for Cal is third baseman Jeff Kobernus, who was a Collegiate Baseball Freshman All-American last year, and this season is batting .308 with 13 doubles, two triples, three home runs and 27 RBI. Kobernus hit a grand slam against Loyola Marymount on Mar. 14.

Rounding out the Bears' regular starting line-up is sophomore catcher Dylan Tonneson and junior shortstop Michael Brady. Tonneson replaced the injured Cutler behind the plate early in the season and never left. He has been one of the team's most consistent hitters, batting .315 with 12 doubles, six home runs and 33 RBI. Brady has anchored the shortstop position with a strong arm, while batting .247 with two doubles, three triples, five home runs and 29 RBI.

Sophomore Rich Gorman has seen the majority of the team's duties as designated hitter, where he is batting .263 with eight doubles, four home runs and 20 RBI. Gorman twice led-off games with home runs against Loyola Marymount on Mar. 15-16.
