Nearly two months after the University of California reinstated three other teams that were slated for elimination, the school said Friday that baseball would survive after a massive fundraising effort by alumni, former players, parents of current players and other team supporters. Cal said financial commitments totaling $9M were presented to chancellor Robert Birgeneau on Thursday by former Golden Bears pitcher and fundraising leader Stu Gordon. The total was short of the initial $10M goal so additional money is still needed in this effort, but the Cal administration was confident enough to announce the program would be saved.
