Oregon State Baseball Team
The Oregon State Beavers baseball team represents Oregon State University in NCAA Division I college baseball. The team participates in the Pac-12 Conference. They are currently coached by Mitch Canham and assistant coaches Nate Yeskie and Andy Jenkins. They play home games in Goss Stadium at Coleman Field.
The Beavers won the 2006 and 2007 College World Series to become only the fifth team in history to win back-to-back national championships, and the first since the super regional format has been implemented. In 2018, the program won its third national title. In addition, the program has won 26 conference championships, qualified for 20 NCAA tournaments, and appeared in seven College World Series.

Goss Stadium at Coleman Field is the home of Oregon State Baseball. Except for the pitcher’s mound, the entire infield uses artificial turf, and the outfield is also artificial. In 2015, the Jacoby Ellsbury Players’ Locker Room (in name of Jacoby Ellsbury who donated $1 million to the project) was completed which finished a string of upgrades to Goss Stadium.
Oregon State players have been named All-Americans 34 times, as of the end of the 2018 season. The university recognizes All-Americans as selected by the American Baseball Coaches Association, Baseball America magazine, the Collegiate Baseball Newspaper, the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association, and USA Today/Sports Weekly.

Oregon State Baseball Roster
The 2019 Oregon State Beavers baseball team began the season as the defending national champion and represented Oregon State University in the 2019 NCAA Division I baseball season. Despite a successful season that saw them ranked as high as No. 1 and selected to host the first round of the 2019 NCAA Division I Baseball Tournament, the team battled multiple injuries and were the first eliminated from the Corvallis Regional.
For the first time in 24 seasons, the team was led by someone other than legendary head coach Pat Casey, who retired from Oregon State following their third national championship under his stewardship. Associate head coach Pat Bailey was given the title of interim head coach, leading to speculation that Pat Casey could return. On June 4, 2019, Oregon State Athletic Director Scott Barnes released a statement that Casey would not exercise his option to return as head coach but would remain in his current position as senior associate athletic director and be a consultant during the search for a new head coach. On June 13, 2019, Mitch Canham, former All-American and player on the 2006 and 2007 national championship teams, was hired as head coach.

UCLA may be the No. 1 overall seed in the tournament, but Vanderbilt, the No. 2 team in the D1Baseball.com rankings, could be the favorite to win it all with the momentum it has entering the tournament.
The Commodores have won nine games in a row, which includes winning both the SEC regular-season and tournament championships. They’re poised to make a run to the College World Series, where they haven’t been since 2015.
This is a team that has everything going for it. Vandy has a top MLB draft prospect—impressive outfielder JJ Bleday—and has demonstrated the ability to win low-scoring close games and all-out slugfests.
In the SEC tournament championship game, the Commodores overcame an eight-run deficit to beat Ole Miss in walk-off fashion, as Philip Clarke’s ninth-inning RBI single gave them an 11-10 win.
Vanderbilt has been strong all season, and the bracket lined up nicely for it to make a deep run to Omaha.
