Gary Thomas DiSarcina (born November 19, 1967 in Malden, Massachusetts) is a minor league baseball roving instructor and a former shortstop in Major League Baseball. He was raised in Billerica, Massachusetts and attended the University of Massachusetts Amherst. DiSarcina was drafted by the California Angels in the 6th round of the 1988 amateur draft. He is currently the roving minor league infield coordinator for the Boston Red Sox, named to the post officially in December 2009. He had spent the previous three seasons as the manager of the Lowell Spinners of the Short Season-A New York-Penn League, a Red Sox farm club.

DiSarcina wore several numbers over the course of his career. He wore the number 4 during his first season. He then changed to number 11 for the following 2 seasons. Once becoming a starter in 1992 he wore number 33, an unusual number for a shortstop, as a tribute to Larry Bird, a hero of his hometown. He then changed to the number 9 for his remaining 4 seasons.[1]

DiSarcina played in his only All-Star game in 1995. In 1998 he was voted the team's MVP.[2]

After DiSarcina's playing career ended, he appeared as an analyst for the New England Sports Network, covering the Red Sox. He was also the third base coach for Italy in the 2006 World Baseball Classic. He lives in Plymouth, Massachusetts.
