Torey Lovullo Helps Coach Boston Red Sox to World Series Title
By: UCLA Athletics

UCLA alum and current Boston Red Sox bench coach Torey Lovullo helped lead the team to its third World Series championship in 10 years last night as the Red Sox defeated the St. Louis Cardinals in six games.

This is Lovullo’s first season as Boston's bench coach after he served as the first base coach in Toronto for the last two seasons under current Red Sox manager John Farrell. Lovullo spent eight seasons in the Major Leagues, batting .224 in 303 career games after being drafted in the fifth round of the 1987 MLB Draft by the Detroit Tigers.

Lovullo was a four-year standout at UCLA, playing in 240 games and posting a career average of .311. He also hit 51 home runs, scored 211 runs and logged 188 RBI in his career, which rank fifth, second and third on UCLA’s all-time lists. Additionally, Lovullo drew 180 walks in his collegiate career, which is a school record. 1987 proved to be his best season, when he hit .350 with 24 home runs, 83 runs, 73 RBI and a .511 on-base percentage en route to earning first-team All-America honors. Lovullo also helped the Bruins to the 1986 Pac-10 Championship by hitting .317 with 55 runs and a team-high 65 RBI.

The UCLA Baseball program has had 13 former players win the World Series at the major league level, with the last being Brandon Crawford with the San Francisco Giants in 2012. Chase Utley led the Philadelphia Phillies to a World Series title back in 2008, the franchise's first championship since 1980, and in October 2004, Dave Roberts guided the Boston Red Sox to the championship, ending Boston's 86-year drought without a World Series title.

Troy Glaus, a standout UCLA infielder from 1995-97, has been the only former Bruin to capture World Series MVP honors. Glaus led the Anaheim Angels to the 2002 World Series title, defeating the San Francisco Giants in seven games. The legendary Jackie Robinson has made the most World Series appearances of any former UCLA ballplayer, playing in six World Series with the Brooklyn Dodgers while Bobby Brown has won the most World Series titles of any former UCLA player, winning four titles with the New York Yankees.
