Amara Aguilar John Savage has been thrown a few curves in life and has had to make some Big League decisions. As a high school baseball pitcher he had to choose whether to sign with the New York Yankees after being drafted in the sixth round in 1983 or go on to college. "It was a very difficult situation," Savage said. "In the early 80s $100,000 was first-round money and there was that type of talk in terms of money being thrown around. It was a big decision because it was the New York Yankees and it's probably the most prolific sports team in the history of baseball."

The UC Irvine connection comes into play for the second straight week as current head coach Mike Gillespie squares off against UCLA head coach John Savage, who was the UCI skipper from 2002-04. The Gillespie-Savage ties also go back to Gillespie’s days as the USC head coach when Savage served as an assistant coach from 1996-2000. UCI (20-5), which went 1-2 against Cal State Fullerton and former UCI Coach Dave Serrano, will start sophomore right-hander Christian Bergman (4-0, 1.08 ERA)

UC Irvine baseball coach Mike Gillespie, introduced at a news conference Tuesday, didn’t disappoint those who were aware of his reputation as a humorous public speaker. Gillespie consistently drew the biggest laughs at the annual preseason Southern California baseball media day organized by Long Beach State, where coaches from virtually every SoCal school speak briefly about their teams. Tuesday, he had the crowd of more than 100 laughing loudly in Newkirk Pavilion. When asked about a pitching coach, a position that remains unfilled as of Monday, Gillespie dead-panned: “We plan on having a pitching coach.

LOS ANGELES ? The UC Irvine baseball team needs one more win to surpass the best single-season total posted by the three Anteater teams coached by John Savage. But Savage wasn't about to have that happen against his current team Tuesday night. UCLA, which hired Savage away from UCI after he took the 'Eaters to their first NCAA Regional in 2004, rolled to a 10-1 nonconference victory at Jackie Robinson Stadium. It was Savage's fourth win in four games against UCI since he took the Bruins' helm.

Barry Faulkner John Savage's familiar walk into Anteater Ballpark tonight will be shorter than he's used to, but the first-year UCLA baseball coach has longed for the opportunity to return to a place he'll always hold dear. For three seasons, Savage strolled from the entrance in the right field corner to the third-base dugout, where he shepherded the Anteaters out of a nine-season hiatus that ended in 2002, to the program's first berth in the NCAA Division I regionals last spring.

Barry Faulkner John Savage, who in three seasons as coach took the UC Irvine baseball program from a 10-year hiatus to the school's first berth in the NCAA Division I regional, has been hired away by UCLA, it was announced Thursday. Savage, hired by then-UCI Athletic Director Dan Guerrero to revive an Anteater program dormant since it became a victim of budget cuts following the 1992 season, was lured to Westwood by Guerrero. Guerrero left UCI after nine years as A.D. in July, 2002 to take the same job at UCLA, for which he played baseball.

It's no coincidence that Cody Cipriano is locked in at the plate. He is, after all, truly home. The junior is at home in the UC Irvine baseball program, at ease playing second base, at peace with leaving his pitching days behind and similarly comfortable hitting third in the Anteaters' batting order. At various points in his collegiate career, Cipriano's baseball universe was not always so symmetrically aligned. As the Anteaters (36-22) face UCLA (32-23) in the opening round of the four-team NCAA Malibu Regional today at 11 a.m. at Pepperdine University, Cipriano is Coach Dave Serrano's most dangerous hitter.
