Also, Cal Baseball says it was not properly warned, read: here and here.

"Nickle disputes the university's numbers, saying his group raised $15 million and that the money the school is turning away would be more than sufficient to put baseball and men's gymnastics on firm footing.He said officials never gave the baseball program the $10 million figure and that he believes that target could have been reached if it was made clear and that his group will still work to reinstate the two programs."We know the university has now made two wrong decisions," Nickle said. "The University of California deserves better. We will continue to work to provide better."

and there's this:
"Birgeneau said he did not believe the announcement in September was premature, even though three of the programs were eventually retained.He said he sent a message to athletic department supporters 16 months ago that these cuts might be necessary and little was done to retain them until the announcement was made.My message engendered virtually no response for an entire year," he said.
