World Series Has Aggie Flair

For the second time in the last three seasons, Major League Baseball's premier event will have a UC Davis flair as former Aggie Daniel Descalso and his St. Louis Cardinals teammates open the 109th World Series against the Boston Red Sox.


Matt Vaughn


Head Coach: UC Davis

With over 20 years of experience as a player and member of the coaching staff at UC Davis, Matt Vaughn was named head coach of the Aggies in August 2011.

Vaughn completed his third season at the helm of his alma mater and 22nd overall with the program in 2014.

The former pitching coach proved he could work just as well with hitters and the Aggies boasted the third best batting average in the Big West, hitting .283 over 56 games. UC Davis also had the third best on-base percentage (.359) and the third most doubles (95) in the conference and ranked No. 4 in runs scored (297). Despite all the firepower at the plate, Vaughn also instilled a great sense of patience in his hitters, as the Aggies struck out just 271 times, the fewest in the league.

After graduating seven pitchers, including all three weekend starters, following the 2012 season, Vaughn gave innings to five freshman arms in 2013. Redshirt freshman Max Cordy recorded six saves as the teams' closer while Spencer Henderson, Jordan Lazor, Dan Gallagher and Zach Williams also saw time out of the bullpen.


Brett Lindgren


Assistant Coach: UC Davis

Formerly a volunteer assistant at Cal State Fullerton and Santa Clara, Brett Lindgren joined the UC Davis baseball staff in a similar role prior to the 2012 season. He has since been elevated to the role of assistant coach beginning in 2013 and enters his fourth season on staff.

Originally from Santa Cruz, Calif., Lindgren served five years with the Cal State Fullerton baseball program as a facilities manager and volunteer assistant. During that span, Cal State Fullerton won three Big West Conference titles and made three trips to the College World Series. He then moved closer to his hometown to coach at Santa Clara for one season.

Lindgren also was an assistant for the Rochester Honkers of the Northwoods League in 2007. He finished that year as the head coach after several staff depatures.


Lloyd Acosta


Assistant Coach: UC Davis

Acosta returns to his alma mater for the second year of his second stint on the Aggie staff after spending five years as an assistant coach at Saint Mary's, helping manage the Gaels' offense, working with the infielders, and coordinating the program's recruiting efforts.

Prior to that, Acosta spent six seasons as an assistant with the Aggies from 2002-07 as the program's recruiting coordinator and working with the defense, improving the team's fielding percentage in every season. UC Davis led the nation with a .970 fielding percentage in 2003 as the Aggies advanced to the NCAA Division II College World Series, finishing third.

In that time, two of his infielders were selected in the Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft: shortstop Ryan Coultas in 2004 (6th round by the New York Mets) -- after he was a 13-round pick by the Chicago Cubs a year earlier -- and Daniel Descalso in 2007 (3rd round by St. Louis), who is entering his fourth season with the Cardinals in 2014 and helped the franchise to a World Series title in his first full season in the major leagues in 2011.
