OREGON STATE BASEBALL A TO Z

Beavers have been a big hit since 1907
Some of the highlights and personalities that have become part of OSU's baseball lore
A as in All-Americans: Since the
American Baseball Coaches Association began selecting All-America teams, Oregon State has had players named to various All-America teams 20 times. The first was outfielder Dwane Helbig in 1952; the most recent was pitcher Scott Nicholson in 2001. The Beavers have had a pair of two-time All-Americans with first baseman Jay Dean in 1954-55 and pitcher Cecil Ira in 1962-63.

B as in ballpark: OSU has had just one
home since starting baseball as a varsity sport in 1907 - Goss Stadium at Coleman Field. The park is located just south of the center of campus, and the field is named for longtime coach Ralph Coleman. In 1999, a new chapter in the ballpark's history began with the addition of Goss Stadium. The stadium is named for the family of John and Eline Goss, the major donors to the $2 million project. Goss Stadium at Coleman Field was designed to blend into the architecture of the central campus area, with an old-style brick exterior. The main grandstand extends from first to third base and seats approximately 1,500, many in theater-style seats. The stadium includes a lobby/concession area, a ticket area, restrooms, an enlarged press box with two private booths, and locker rooms for both teams connected to their dugouts via tunnel. For decades, the field was simply known as the OAC or OSC diamond. The first published references to it as Coleman Field appeared in the mid-1940s and the name quickly went into common usage. It wasn't until 1981, though, that the ballpark was officially named Coleman Field by OSU. Through 95 seasons, OSU's all-time record in its home ballpark stood at 919-410-1 for a winning percentage of.691.

Ralph Coleman
1952 College World Series.

Jay Dean
turned it down to become OAC's head coach.

Coming to OSU - then known as Oregon Agricultural College - as a student from Canby High, Coleman pitched for OAC in 1918. His main interest was track and field, though, and Coleman lettered three years before trying
baseball as a senior.

D as in Diamonds: The Oregon State
Diamonds are a group of OSU women who volunteer their time to help the Beaver baseball program. The Diamonds, introduced in 2001, assist at home games by serving as hostesses for the press box and Dugout Club lounge and by working as batgirls. They also help with the Dugout Club's annual golf tournament.

After serving in World War 1, Coleman coached at Corvallis High and OAC. He pitched for the Portland Beavers in the Pacific Coast League and fared well enough to be offered a tryout with the Detroit Tigers, but

D as in Dean: Jay Dean was Oregon
State's first two-time All-American. The big

C as in Coleman: Ralph Coleman
served the longest tenure of any coach in Beaver baseball history, 35 seasons from 1923 through 1966. His teams were 561-315-1 with 10 Northern Division titles and a spot in the

OREGON STATE BASEBALL GUIDE

World Series championship team known as the "Hitless Wonders." A salary dispute with Sox owner Charles Comiskey led to Jones leaving the Windy City, though. Jones came to the Pacific Northwest to look after timber and land interests and was enlisted as OAC's baseball coach, traveling from Portland to Corvallis for practices and games when ever possible. The Beavers posted a 13-4-1 record in 1910, claiming the Northwest Collegiate Championship. Jones eventually went to St. Louis as a player-manager for that city's entry in the Federal League from 1914-15. He later managed the St. Louis Browns from 1916-18.

Fielder Jones
first baseman was a first-team selection in both 1954 and 1955, batting .456 and .465, respectively, in those two seasons. He still holds OSU's record for career batting average at .379 for his four seasons. As a freshman, Dean helped Oregon State to the 1952 College World Series. He was also an outstanding basketball player, captaining the Beavers to within one point of the Final Four his senior season. Dean is one of very few athletes in Oregon State history to captain Beaver squads in two sports.

Steve Lyons
G as in Gill: Slats Gill is best known as
Oregon State's all-time winningest men's basketball coach, going 599-392 with two Final Four teams in 36 seasons. But Gill, who had been an OAC athlete from Salem High, was the Beavers' baseball coach while Ralph Coleman concentrated on duties in the physical education department from 1932-37. Gill's teams went 56-70.

K as in K's: The names atop OSU's strikeout lists are Mason Smith and Ken Forsch. Smith is the career leader with 267 strikeouts from 1991-94, while Forsch is the single-season leader with 121 in 1968.

L as in Lyons: Steve Lyons put together
a nine-year career in the Major Leagues after playing at Oregon State from 1979-81. Nicknamed "Psycho" for his unique approach to the game, Lyons can now be seen as a broadcaster during baseball telecasts and other programs or Fox Sports. After being the first-round draft pick of the Boston Red Sox in 1981, Lyons played for the Chicago White Sox, Atlanta Braves and Montreal Expos from 1985-93. Lyons' on-field moves included playing tictac-toe with opposing players by scratching the game in the dirt with his spikes. And yes, Lyons was the guy who dropped his pants to brush the dirt out after sliding headlong into first base in 1990.

H as in homers: Goss Stadium at
Coleman Field has always been a spacious ballpark, but the Beaver teams of the late 1970s and early 1980s tested what was then a 355foot leftfield line with regularity. Five of OSU's top nine single-season homer marks by a player were set from 1980-83, including Jim Wilson's record of 21 in 1982. 1 as in indoors: Oregon State has taken its game indoors on two occasions. In 1993, the Beavers played a three-game Northern Division series against Washington in the Kingdome in Seattle, winning the final game. In 1999, Oregon State visited Minnesota for a non-league series and the three games were played at the Metrodome, with the Gophers sweeping the Beavers.

D as in draft: Major League Baseball
began its amateur draft in 1965. Since then, OSU has had 72 players drafted, including three in the first round. Shortstop Steve Lyons was the Beavers' initial first-rounder, being taken with the 19th pick overall by the Boston Red Sox in 1981. Pitcher Scott Christman was OSU's highest selection ever, being nabbed by the Chicago White Sox with the 17th overall pick in 1993. Pitcher Mike Thurman was Oregon State's latest first-rounder, being taken by the Montreal Expos at No. 31 as a supplemental pick in 1994.

L as in "Let there be lights!": Goss
Stadium at Coleman Field received its first set of lights during the 2002 season; the project was made possible by the generosity of longtime Oregon State boosters Bert and Shirley Babb. The first-ever night game at the ballpark saw OSU's Ben Rowe pitch a four-hitter at fourth-ranked Stanford for a 3-1 victory.

E as in extra innings: The longest
known game in Beaver baseball history? It was a 20-inning, 2-1 loss to Washington in 1972 in Corvallis.

M as in Majors: There have been 16
Beavers who went on to play in the Major Leagues. One of the first was Ed Coleman, brother of longtime coach Ralph Coleman. Ed Coleman pitched for the Beavers in 1924 and 1926, then played for the Philadelphia Athletic: and St. Louis Browns from 1932-36.

F as in Forsch: Ken Forsch, a
righthander from Sacramento, Calif., was the Beaver who had the longest Major League career, 16 seasons. After pitching at OSU in 1967 and 1968, Forsch was 114-113 with a 3.37 earned run average for the Houston Astros and California Angels from 1970-86. In 1979, while pitching for Houston, Forsch no-hit the Atlanta Braves; one of the hitters he retired was former OSU teammate Bob Beall. Forsch was assistant general manager for the Anaheim Angels during their 2002 World Series victory.

I as in Ira: Cecil Ira was a two-time AllAmerica pitcher on OSU's 1962 and 1963 Northern Division champions. He is still OSU's career earned run average leader with a 1.79 mark, and was 27-9 from 1961-63. He also holds the Pacific-10 records for shutouts in a season, with five in 1963, and shutouts in a career, with 10 from 1961-63.

N as in Northern Division: In 1999,
the Pacific- 10 Conference returned to playing baseball as a single league. However, OSU has spent most of its baseball history in the Northern Division, which dated back to 1913. In its final season of 1998, the Northern Division included Oregon State, Portland State, Washington and Washington State. Through the decades, the division also included Oregon,

J as in Jones: When the Beavers
claimed their first Northwest Collegiate championship in 1910, their coach was Fielder Jones. Just four years before, Jones had been a player-manager on the Chicago White Sox's

Portland, Gonzaga, Eastern Washington, Idaho, Montana, Whitman, Willamette and Pacific (Ore.) at various times.

0 as in Opening Day: Oregon State
has a tradition of playing well on Opening Day. The Beavers' all-time record in season-openers is 66-29, and OSU has won 12 of its last 18 season-openers. In home-openers, OSU has an all-time record of 76-19, with the Beavers winning 15 of their last 17 home-openers and 30 of their last 33.

0 as in origins: Varsity baseball began
at OAC in 1907, but the roots of the sport reach further back. The official history of Oregon State University lists a baseball game as the school's first intercollegiate athletic event - a game against Monmouth Christian College in Corvallis on April 14, 1883. In that game, OAC wound up losing 23-7. Several tries were made at starting the sport over the next 24 years, but most seem to have been thwarted by the Pacific Northwest's wet springs. Indoor baseball was popular, however, and the Barometer for June, 1900 pictures the OAC indoor baseball team with its championship banner.

Jack Riley
An outstanding baseball and basketball player at nearby Linfield College, Riley was the NAIA national stolen base leader as a senior. He later played professionally for the Salem Dodgers.

Wes Schulmerich
an OSU record for victories, going 39-15 and placing third in the NCAA Midwest Regional at Stillwater, Okla. The record for wins during the regular season belongs to the 1997 team, which went 38-12-1.

S as in Schulmerich: Wes
Schulmerich, one of the finest athletes in school history, ended his collegiate career by hitting .459 for the 1927 Beavers. The centerfielder went on to play in the Major Leagues from 1931-34 with the Boston Braves and Philadelphia Phillies. He was inducted into the State of Oregon Sports Hall of Fame in 1980.

W as in World Series: Oregon State
appeared in the College World Series in 1952. The Beavers defeated Southern California in the Pacific Coast Conference Championship Series and swept Fresno State for the NCAA Far West Regional championship before a record Goss Stadium at Coleman Field crowd of 5,000. At the College World Series in Omaha, Neb., the Beavers lost two straight games, 18-7 to Duke and 10-1 to Texas.

P as in pennants: OSU teams have
brought home 20 pennants over the years. The first was the 1908 Oregon Collegiate Championship; the latest was the 1994 Pacific-10 Northern Division title. Oregon State raised three flags in the 1952 season, winning the championships of the Northern Division, the Pacific Coast Conference and the Far West Regional.

T as in television: From 1998-2004,
Oregon State has played on national cable television nearly each season, and the Beavers have gone 3-3 in those games, including a 3-1 mark at home. Since Fox Sports Net (formerly Prime Sports) began televising games in 1990, Oregon State has a 29-16 record in televised games, including 8-4 in national TV games.

Q as in "Quiet, I'm trying to
study!": OSU has had four Academic AllAmericans in baseball: Ken Bowen and Bryan Ganter in 1986 and 1987, Mason Smith in 1994 and Ben Bertrand in 1998. Another OSU player was named a Rhodes Scholar: Knute Buehler, who lettered from 1983-85. R as in rallying, big-time: The largest deficit Oregon State has ever overcome to win a game is 14 runs. That was in 2003, when the Beavers trailed New Mexico State 14-0 after
five innings in El Paso, Tex. OSU scored five runs in the sixth inning, three in the seventh and eight in the eighth for a 16-14 win.

X as in exhibitions: Oregon State has
played a wide variety of non-collegiate and foreign opposition over the years, including two 1996 games against Nittaidi University of Japan in the Hawaii Easter Tournament and a 1998 contest against CETYS of Mexico in the San Diego Classic Local pros like the Eugene Emeralds and Salem Senators were frequent opponents into the 1950s; OSU played the Portland Beavers as recently as 1981. Goss Stadium at Coleman Field was the site of two games in the 1920s against Meiji University of Japan and a 1921 game vs. the New York Colored Sox.

T as in travel: OSU baseball teams have
been journeying far from the Pacific Northwest since 1920. That year, the Beavers made their first extended spring trip, going to the Bay Area for games against Santa Clara, Stanford, California, the Sacramento Senators and Cal State-Chico. OSU's first-ever trip to the East Coast came in 1992 when the Beavers played in a tournament at Central Florida.

R as in Riley: Jack Riley is Oregon
State's winningest baseball coach ever, going 613-411-5 in 22 seasons. A fiery competitor who wasn't shy about showing his emotions on the field, Riley coached at OSU from 1973-94. His teams won or tied for five Northern Division titles and won two division tournaments. His 1986 team set a school record for victories, going 39-15 and finishing third in the Midwest Regional.

U as in unhittable: Two no-hitters have
been uncovered in Oregon State baseball history. On April 12, 1947, Fred Gallagher blanked Montana 1-0 in the second game of a doubleheader at Goss Stadium at Coleman Field, striking out seven. On April 11, 1967, Cleve Benson, Eric Selberg and Jack Humphrey combined to shut out Portland 11-0 at Goss Stadium at Coleman Field.

Y as in years without baseball:
Since starting a varsity baseball program in 1907, Oregon State has twice halted the sport. No team was fielded in 1917 due to World War I, and there was no team in 1944 or 1945 due to World War II.

Z as in zipping along: Oregon State
has twice had 18-game win streaks, in 1951 and 1962. Both winning streaks came in the first 18 games of the season.

V as in victories: The 1986 Beavers set

in 2002-03; in 2003, Baseball America magazine honored him as its Minor League Manager of the Year. He pitched and played several other positions for the Beavers from 1984-86, earning All-America honors and leading Oregon State into the NCAA Tournament in 198586 A fourth-round draft choice of the Philadelphia Phillies, Brundage's minor league career included becoming a player-coach in 1993; he s now been in the Mariners'organization solely as a coach or manager for 10 seasons.

Coach Jack Riley had a huge impact on my life not only as a player but, more importantly, as a
person.

This opportunity, combined with my intense drive to excel, my fathers' love and discipline, and my wife's support, has shaped Ben Bertrand is a practicing physical therapist with Mountain Valley Therapy in La Grande, Ore. Bertrand caught for the Beavers from 199698, including a medical redshirt season, earning All-Northern Division honors in 1997-98. He was an Academic AllAmerican and played in the San Francisco Giants' organization. At the con- Bertrand clusion of his baseball career, Bertrand earned his Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Pacific University. In addition to his physical therapy practice, Bertrand is also the assistant baseball coach at Eastern Oregon University, working primarily with hitters and catchers. "My experiences at Oregon State were among the most rewarding of my life. I learned that hard work without a specific goal and a plan to achieve that goal is just hard work. I
learned that I was capable of so much more than I gave myself credit for These life lessons were a direct result of the time I spent with my teammates, the academic challenges I faced, and the guidance of coaches Pat Casey and Dan Spencer. "Academics came easier to me than basethe person I am today. "To me, Oregon State is not just the university I attended; it is my home away from home. I made some of my closest friends on the baseball field at Oregon State and I con-

sider them family. I am thankful that I had the honor and privilege to put on an Oregon State baseball uniform and to play the game I love."

Dave Brundage managed San Antonio - the Seattle Mariners' Class Double-A farm team to back-to-back Texas League championships

"When I packed my bags and headed off to the rude awakening of Minor League baseball, I was prepared for the real world - mentally and physically. I once came to Oregon State as a raw and naive person. I made the comment early on in my career at OSU that `I've got so much to learn, it's tough to improve.' But we all needed to to start somewhere, and OSU was the best place possible. Sometimes it's not the best to be a little fish in a big pond, because at OSU it seemed like everyone is a big fish in a little pond! "I have fond memories of my OSU days due to the closeness of my teammates and staff. The experiences that I had at OSU will never leave me. And as Coach Riley put it best on a daily basis, `It's tough to make chicken salad out of chicken poop!' Well, at OSU they've done a great job with their salads so far, and I thoroughly enjoyed my experience."

Knute Buehler is an orthopaedic surgeon at the Chiropractic & Neurosurgical Center of the Cascades in Bend, Ore. He pitched for the Beavers from 1983-85, playing on teams that advanced to the NCAA Tournament in 1983 and 1985. Buehler was a Rhodes Scholar and went on to earn a master of arts degree in Political Economy from Oxford; he completed his medical studies at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. He is on the board of advisors for

Dave Brundage

"Over 20 years since arriving in Corvallis to attend OSU, the emotions remain intense. The years have not tempered my feeling of wonder about making it in a `bigger pond,' the concerns about the academic challenges, and the exhilaration of the first baseball game as a freshman. It is inspiring how such latent feelings can be

triggered today by walks on the campus encountering sites, sounds and even smells of events so long ago. "The campus and community remain a large part of my OSU experience. The calm, beautiful surroundings countered the somewhatfrantic college life. This was certainly true in the spring, when the azaleas and rhododendrons bloomed during finals week as if to highlight the end-of-the-year accomplishments. The Corvallis community, like the beautiful campus, was supportive and in sync with my needs. Local businesses were always willing to accommodate, without complaint, my occasional need for a new study environment. When I began to focus on my career options, community surgeons facilitated my first encounter with knee replacement surgery. Ironically, this experience foreshadowed my future. "My education at OSU allowed my future to meet no closed doors. The knowledge gained from my microbiology and history degrees prepared me for the varied challenges of medical school and a Rhodes Scholarship. My education and personal mentoring by OSU professors broadened my horizons from the big pond of OSU to crossing the pond to attend Oxford University. Each step of the way my confidence in my OSU training grew. "Playing baseball at OSU further enhanced my experience. Pitching for the Beavers allowed me to mature in ways the classroom does not allow. I was able to travel throughout the western United States and play against some of the nation's best athletes. I learned from Coach Jack Riley how to compete on the pitching mound and in the real world. Importantly, I matured with the knowledge that being a productive team member frequently means finding one's role. "My OSU experience added incredible value to my life. The memories remain intense since the effort and importance of those building years have so fundamentally shaped my personality and career. The passing of the years has done nothing to lessen the experience."

two stories - in 1975 as a 17-year-old freshman from Junction City, and then again in 1989 after my baseball career was over. "I learned more, and grew up more, in my first three years at OSU than any other period of my life. The only reason I went to college was to play baseball, and I felt very fortunate to land in the best program in the state. Coach Jack Riley worked harder than anyone at finding ways to practice and improve despite the
weather.

play baseball for the Beavers is an experience that I cherish. The demands put on studentathletes at OSU undoubtedly prepared me for life after college. Not only did I receive an outstanding education academically, but also an education in hard work, dedication, consistency, and team play. While many of these Checketts lessons were learned in
the classroom, the majority were learned on the baseball field under Pat Casey and his staff. "On a daily basis, we were held accountable for not only our performance on the field, but also in the classroom and our personal lives. I'm forever indebted to OSU for the lessons I learned while attending OSU. "Consistent hard work is a requirement at OSU, as in most successful companies and organizations. The staff at OSU is an outstanding example of how leaders can instill this trait in their organization, while setting an example of the importance of being a good person."

He pitched for Oregon State from 1996-98 and was All-Northern Division in 1997 and 1998 His senior season, Checketts was named the league's Player of the Year and earned AllAmerica honors. He was drafted by the Boston Red Sox, and returned to OSU to earn his degree in Business Administration. Checketts was pitching coach at Riverside Community College, helping RCC to its second straight state title, before being hired at UCR.

"What I am equally grateful for now is the exposure I got and experiences I gained from being a college student. One of the best things was meeting people from different places and backgrounds. I lived in Cauthorn dorm my freshman year, and I still keep in touch with some of the friends I met there. An added bonus was meeting my wife Liz while working out at McAlexander Fieldhouse. Although I was a mediocre student, my failings taught me a lot. I changed majors several times in my search for something I was good at or liked. Getting drafted by the St.Louis Cardinals delayed that search, but fulfilled my dream. "I love sports, but I kept thinking there must be more to life. In the back of my mind was a dream of building a golf course with my brother. In 1984, after my first year in Japan, I purchased 160 acres of land near Monroe. "When my baseball career ended, I found myself at a crossroad, wanting to do something other than baseball, but having no work experience or training. I started working production at Evanite Fiber and, at my wife's suggestion, enrolled 12 hours in the OSU School of Business. It had been 12 years since I last attended OSU and this time I was going only for the education - my goal was to learn about business rather than worry about the degree. I finally graduated from OSU in 1992, this time with a 3.9 GPA in Business. That same year, we were granted the permit to build Diamond Woods I've still got lots to learn about running a business, but my education at OSU helped fulfill my dream. "I began school at OSU as a baseball player from a small town. I am not from a business family, and had very little experience working in business so the classroom was my first exposure to a business plan, basic accounting, finance, project management, and daily operations. For anyone who has ever tried starting a business, they know how many things can go wrong, and how important a good education is. I am very thankful for the education I received at OSU."

and signed was All-Star Ryne Sandberg.

"I went back to try to get it all in (and finish his degree); I think I lacked 13 or 14 hours. From that point, I had to go to Venezuela and I had to play three or four winters in Venezuela. By that time, I was in the big leagues and I never got back to Oregon State. "It was a good background, though, that was the main thing. If I had signed, even out of junior college, I think physically I wouldn't have been able to take it; I don't think my arm would have taken it. But along with that, it gave me the opportunity to get into banking and to do different things. You have a college education like that, and it broadens your horizon. There are so many different things you're exposed to, and I think that's what really helps. That afforded me to get into banking, real estate, insurance - I got into that for a little bit. I took a Business course, the basic economics course. "I can honestly say that attending OSU was an experience that I am very fortunate to have not only as a foundation to a pro baseball career, but more importantly, as a foundation to a career in Major League Baseball management."

of guys that truly played together as a team; we were talented and scrappy. We were a true reflection of our coach, Jack Riley. The lessons learned on the baseball field were numerous. Not only were they vital in my devolvement as a person and a physician, but also are applicable in dealing with life's daily challenges. "The academic education at OSU was challenging, and valuable. Before coming to OSU, I was well aware of the strong reputation in the biological sciences, and was able to experience it firsthand upon entering. I was lucky to have a number of professors who took pride in teaching, and were interested in seeing their students' progress. As a result, I was well prepared to handle the academic rigors of medical school, as were my medical school classmates who were OSU alums. "I consider myself lucky to have had the opportunity to attend OSU not only because of the valuable on- and off-field education, but also because of all the memorable relationships that have been forged as a result. I came in contact with so many wonderful people from so many walks of life. From fellow teammates, classmates, administrators, professors, all were helpful in making my experience at OSU one that will be cherished forever."

"I've had the opportunity to be around the Oregon State University baseball program for many years, both as a player and an assistant coach to Ralph Coleman and Gene Tanselli. Oregon State, the School of Education, and the baseball program prepared me Harper for a high school teaching and coaching career at Roseburg (Ore.) High School before returning to Oregon State. "My experience at Oregon State also prepared me to become a professional baseball scout for the Philadelphia Phillies. Oregon State has been an outstanding baseball program that has produced many professional players, several of whom have made it to the Major League level. "I have observed many games at OSU after becoming a scout. The first player I drafted was from Oregon State - Bob Beall, who went on to play in the Major Leagues for the Philadelphia Phillies and Atlanta Braves. "With the baseball coaching staff and the new baseball facilities, Oregon State is going to attract top-level players. As a scout, I've been to many ballparks, and Goss Stadium at Coleman Field is one of the best sites to play college baseball in the nation."

the Oregon State baseball program and head coach Pat Casey empower each player to experience the paradigm shift needed to succeed both on and off the field. The driving forces of perseverance and positive thought, as well as the creation of an inner drive, has not left me. "It was in the early mornings under the guidance and coaching of assistant coach Dan Spencer, my catching coach, in McAlexander Fieldhouse that I faced many life lessons. I realized in those mornings that every day presents a decision; a choice to live each day out with focus, drive, determination, perseverance and hard work. Especially during those early sessions, Coach Spencer demonstrated he is an amazing motivator and is able to tap into each player's full potential. Then on game day, I witnessed the dividends, the results of that hard work, and could see tangibly how that hard work paid off individually and as a team. "Although currently I am not working within the realm of my major, Political Science, I consider the many skills and insights my studies provided me to have been most beneficial - especially as I have traveled domestically and internationally - with baseball as well as with my music and business career.

"There is no question that my opportunities at Oregon State went far beyond those of an average student. Getting the chance to pursue a potential career in professional baseball, while having half my education paid for with a partial scholarship, was like a double whammy for my future that few people could expect. "I took full advantage of the situation because I knew I wasn't in a financial position to attend OSU without the scholarship, and my talents as a baseball player would never have been realized without the intense baseball program I became a part of while I was there. "I believe every student learns more about themselves, grows up a little, and begins to shape their future during the years they spend in college, but the small-town atmosphere and a feeling of being `home' and comfortable gave me a chance to gain confidence gradually, and didn't overwhelm me in any respect of college
life.

Ryan Lipe was a two-time All-Northern Division selection while playing third base for the Beavers from 1995-98. He is currently a sales representative for Cardinal Health, a Fortune 20 supplier of surgical products and services; he lives in Ashland, Ore. "The experiences that I had while attending Oregon State were among the most rewarding of my life. I played Division I baseball for a premier program, met some of my closest friends (including my wife), and earned the degree that carried me into my career in medical device sales. "Academically, the education I received at Oregon State was very strong. As a General Science/Pre-Medicine major, it was initially my goal to attend medical school and ultimately become a physician. My counselor in the College of Science, Chere Pereira, took to the challenge of coordinating a curriculum around the demands of my baseball schedule. In addition, she helped to place me in a summer internship in New York City and ultimately earn

admission to medical school. While I opted to take another career path in the medical sciences, I owe a great deal of gratitude to the Oregon State science department for the position I hold today. "My academic experiences were rewarding, for sure, but it was my experiences competing on the baseball diamond for the Beavers that I cherish the most. The excitement of a televised Beaver-Husky game, with the stands packed and postseason play on the line, is a feeling that I cannot put to words. In the midst of these battles, I developed some of my dearest and lasting friendships. If I can figure out a way to come back and do it again, I will. As for the baseball program itself, playing for Coach Casey and his staff was an honor. While the instruction was of the highest caliber, the values they instilled in us have had the biggest impact on me - hard work, discipline, teamwork and respect. These are values that go much further than the baseball field. "In short, the experiences I had as a studentathlete at Oregon State have had a profound impact on the person I am today. I am thankful and honored for having had the opportunity to compete on the baseball field and earn my
degree at Oregon State.

"Having grown up in the state of Oregon, I think I had the innate sense of being a part of the best the state had to offer, as a student and athlete at Oregon State. Through the 15 years of playing professional baseball and now with my broadcasting career for Fox, I've traveled extensively since leaving OSU. I know going there only intensified my pride in being an Oregonian. Any success I've had and the person I've become are in direct relation to my youth in Oregon and my experiences at Oregon State."

This really helped me make the adjustment academically and socially, after coming from a small school (32 in my graduating class at Mt. Angel). The athletic program, coaches (Ralph Coleman and Paul Valenti) and the players provided the experience of learning to compete and play within the rules. The most significant event that occurred was meeting my wife, Ann Ridings; we will celebrate our 48th wedding anniversary this year. "My degree at OSU was in Education, which I pursued for four years. I enjoyed teaching, coaching and administration, but decided to switch careers. Contacts from the University have played a major part in my career. Ralph Coleman helped significantly in obtaining my first job, coaching and teaching. Don White, a pitching teammate, was instrumental in securing a position in the training program with a New York Stock Exchange firm. That started me on my investment career. These relationships have been very important in my career and certainly confirm the value of attending an in-state school, especially if you plan to live and work in Oregon. "The most significant athletic experience I remember as a sophomore in 1952 was when we won the Northern Division, the Pacific Coast Conference and the Western Regional. That put us in the College World Series. I had the opportunity to pitch the second game in the series against Southern California and Fresno State. The seniors, like John Thomas and Cub Houck, helped create an attitude that we could beat any team. Defeating USC, the previous year's national champion, was an experience I will always remember. Getting together with the players of that `52 team on several occasions has been most enjoyable. "The overall experience I had at OSU and the financial help I received has motivated me to `give back' to the University through the OSU Foundation and the athletic program, baseball in particular. The tradition of a quality baseball program that has a long history and produced many scholar-athletes has fostered my support. We have been fortunate to have long-term outstanding coaches. Ralph Coleman, Gene Tanselli, Jack Riley, and now Pat Casey, have done and are doing a great job of carrying these values forward. "I had the opportunity to get to know Pat Casey when we worked together on the Goss Stadium project. From the beginning, there were many people involved, but Pat was the catalyst and he played the most important role in bringing this great facility to fruition. I would be remiss if I didn't mention the help of the athletic department's Bob Westlund, who did an outstanding job on the fundraising. "I'm proud to be part of the OSU family and to have the opportunity to enjoy the results of its success."

actually reflect current `real world' practices. "Academic success for me was not inherent. It came through dedication, hard work, and a competitive nature that demanded success. Although the seeds of these traits were probably planted in me long before, it wasn't until I had an opportunity to compete in the Pac- 10 that they actually developed. "As I give great accolades to the OSU Engineering program, they pale in comparison to my feelings for the OSU Baseball Program. Under Pat Casey and his staff's direction, baseball developed in me the skills necessary to succeed academically and later in the professional world. I will always be indebted to the OSU Athletic program for the opportunities it made available to me."

"Looking back on my baseball career at Oregon State, I can hardly believe that it has been over 12 years since I first set foot onto Coleman Field. It was a dream come true for me to be able to do just that, coming from Philomath High, playing at (Corvallis American Legion program) Richey's Market in the summer of 1991 and then to a Division I, Pac-10 program like Oregon State. To make things even better, I was joined by fellow Richey's Market players and great friends like Allen Snelling, Jim Champion, John Schultz, Kevin Hooker and later, Brooke Knight. "As we developed as baseball players and as men under the instruction of (Coach) Jack Riley, I think that we all sensed we would be champions before we left the program. Of course we had other players who weren't from the Corvallis area that made great contributions in our quest for a championship, but the core of our team was that of local players. Over the next three years, my teamates and friends made many memories both on and off of the field, but there is one thing that really stands out. "In 1994, we finally won the Pac-10 Northcm Division championship. That championship turned out to be bittersweet, however, because we did not receive a berth to the NCAA tournament. With Washington State on probation for rules violations, our conference did not have the required six eligible teams and therefore could not get an automatic berth. "We were still champions, however, and that still ranks as one of my proudest moments in baseball. To reach that goal, in Coach Riley's last season, with my best friends in the world,

"Looking back after almost 50 years, my time at Oregon State was a very positive learning and maturing experience. This opportunity was made possible by an athletic scholarship which I have appreciated increasingly over the years. It gave me four years of being associated with motivated, achievement-oriented people with excellent values. These values were especially apparent in the fraternity (Sigma Alpha Epsilon) and the athletic program. The World War II vets ran the fraternity as a `tight ship.'

Goss Stadium at Coleman Field

Beavers' home is a true original
Goss Stadium at Coleman Field blends one of nation's oldest diamonds with one of nation's newest stadiums
Over the last 97 years, championships have been won here. At least one former player had his ashes scattered here. One of the 1998 inductees into the Baseball Hall of Fame - who never played a game in the Major Leagues played here. And a plane once crashed into left field during a game - sort of. Goss Stadium at Coleman Field has an interesting history, to say the least. When Oregon State began fielding a varsity baseball team in 1907, the school laid out a diamond on a lot just south of the main campus. Over 90 years later, that same site still serves as the home of the Beavers, making Goss Stadium at Coleman Field the oldest diamond in the Pacific- 10 Conference and one of the oldest college fields in the country. When Goss Stadium was added to Coleman Field in 1999, OSU owned not only one of the most historic home ballparks in the country but one of the finest, as well. "We're very fortunate at Oregon State," OSU head coach Pat Casey said. "We've got some of the finest baseball facilities on the West Coast, from the standpoint of both players and spectators. And we're also very lucky to have been able to keep our ballpark located in the center of campus - it makes for a great atmosphere for college baseball." Over the past nine decades, the campus has grown around Goss Stadium at Coleman Field, making it one of the most picturesque settings in college baseball. The 2,000-capacity ballpark is a short walk down Waldo Place

from the Memorial Union and OSU's central campus area, making it easy for students to stop by a game between classes. The field is named for former Oregon State player and coach Ralph Coleman, who guided the Beavers for 35 seasons from 1923-66. The stadium is named for John and Eline Goss, whose major lead gift to the $2.3-million fundraising effort made the project possible. John Goss was an Oregon State track and field letterman in the 1930s. The naming of the stadium is also a memorial to his older brother, James Goss, an Oregon State graduate. John and Eline Goss have made additional contributions to OSU that will lead to endowed scholarships for student/athletes and other top academic students, including graduates of Portland's Grant High School and members of the Beta Theta Pi fraternity. OSU's all-time record at Goss Stadium at Coleman Field is 919-410-1 ( 691). The park is symmetrical, measuring 330 feet down the foul lines, 365 to the power alleys and 400 to center. The fence is 11 feet high from leftfield to left-center, then eight feet high from left-center to rightfield. Goss Stadium extends roughly from first to third base around Coleman Field. The concrete, steel and brick grandstand has approximately 1,500 seats, a press box, a lobby/concession area, restrooms, locker rooms, dugouts and storage areas. The stadium was designed to complement the architecture of the surrounding

campus, and to evoke the aura of baseball's historic parks The first game after the addition of Goss Stadium to Coleman Field was on March 12, 1999, when defending national champion Southern California topped the Beavers 5-2. The stadium was dedicated on April 17, 1999 as OSU beat California 11-5 before a crowd of 1,246 and a national cable television audience. The ballpark saw its first night game on April 26, 2002, as the Beavers beat fourthranked Stanford 3-1. A set of lights meeting professional Class Triple-A standards was installed that spring thanks to the generosity of longtime OSU boosters Bert and Shirley Babb. "The lights have been a great addition," Casey said. "It's given us a lot of flexibility in when we can schedule practices and games around our players' academic schedules." Coleman Field itself has been upgraded in

recent years. The outfield was rebuilt in the fall of 1998; the infield was rebuilt in 1996. Stateof-the-art drainage systems were installed in both areas, and the infield was covered with Turface for improved consistency. Goss Stadium at Coleman Field has batting cages behind the left-field fence. When conditions call for indoor practice, the Beavers head for OSU's Truax Indoor Practice Facility, which opened in August, 2001. The addition of Goss Stadium ended years of speculation over whether the Beavers would be able to remain playing baseball at their longtime home. As Oregon State expanded, land near the center of campus became scarce and the school's master plan called for the site to eventually be turned over to academic uses. In 1961, The Oregonian newspaper noted:
"In the not-too-distant future, Oregon State

baseball hopefuls won't have railroad tracks as a long-distance batting target. Coleman Field will eventually hold no basepaths, only buildings in this era of construction for higher education. Already one classroom building for this site is beyond the drawing board stage." For over 30 years, that possibility prevented any major improvements to Coleman Field. Long-term plans for the OSU campus called for moving the baseball field southeast of the intersection of Western Boulevard and 26th
Street.

In 1996, the baseball program explored building a press box and storage/concession building at Coleman Field. The possibility of

building a stadium was also looked into, and that gradually became the goal of the baseball program and many Beaver boosters. The generous donation from the Goss family was the key to a private fundraising effort in the late 1990s. The ballpark's name would be ammended to Goss Stadium at Coleman Field in their honor in 1999. With no buildings slated for the Coleman Field site in the next 20 years, objections to a stadium were overcome in early 1997. The OSU campus master plan was changed at that point, assuring that the Beavers will continue playing at Goss Stadium at Coleman Field well

into the future. Now the Beavers are out to make that future as interesting as their home ballpark's past.
Over the past nine decades, the campus has grown to surround Goss Stadium at Coleman Field. More than 1,200 games have been played on the site, against foes ranging from Northern Division rivals to teams from Japan and Canada, barnstorming Negro Leaguers, local minor leaguers and military teams. Coleman began coaching at Oregon State in 1923, and the first reference to the ballpark as Coleman Field came in the mid-1940s. The name quickly grew into common usage; how-

Goss Stadium at Coleman Field in 1983
ever, it wasn't until 1981 that OSU officially named the field in honor of the longtime coach. When the students at Oregon Agricultural College got their wish and the school started a varsity baseball team in 1907, the football field was located on the present site of McAlexander Fieldhouse and the physical plant building. The baseball diamond went on a far corner of the field, next to brand-new Waldo Hall. In 1910, "the armory" - now McAlexander Fieldhouse - was built and football and track leapfrogged the baseball field to find a new home behind the first baseline, an area that became Bell Field. That was the first of many changes in Goss Stadium at Coleman Field's surroundings. The Men's Gymnasium - later renamed Langton Hall - opened in 1914, adjacent to the athletic fields. In 1946, the Navy ROTC quonset huts were tucked behind the right-field corner and a year later Cascade Hall opened beyond center field. In 1959, Snell Hall opened across the street from the left-field corner. In 1967, Finley Hall went up across the railroad tracks from right field. In 1973, Bell Field saw its last intercollegiate athletic event as the track and field program moved to a new facility. Dixon Recreation Center opened on that site in 1976 and Stevens Natatorium was added in 1994. As Oregon State's campus changed and grew around Goss Stadium at Coleman Field, the ballpark itself stayed roughly the same. Sets of bleachers came and went, fences were torn down and replaced. The infield was rebuilt several times, most recently in 1996. Players were finally treated to the field's first dugouts in 1972, and that was the same year the first press box was constructed. The Scott Halbrook Memorial Scoreboard was added in 1986. Goss Stadium at Coleman Field has been the home to 20 pennant-winning OSU teams
over the years. In 1952, the diamond was the site of two of the greatest moments in Beaver baseball history.

After winning the Northern Division title,
Oregon State swept Southern California in a best-of-three series to win the Pacific Coast Conference championship. The next weekend, the Beavers swept Fresno State in the NCAA West Regional series to earn a trip to the College World Series. OSU nearly earned another trip to the CWS in 1963 when it met Southern California in a first-round series of the NCAA West Regional at Goss Stadium at Coleman Field. The Beavers, ranked as high as sixth nationally during the season, split the first two games with the Trojans before falling 7-5 in the finale. USC went on to win the national title. The first game on the OSU diamond - and the first varsity game in Oregon State baseball history - was played on April 12, 1907, and Salem High handed the Beavers a 4-0 defeat.

Headlined "OAC Defeated by Salem High School," The Barometer student newspaper reported: "Yesterday afternoon the OAC baseball team was defeated in its first game of the season. The score being 4 to 0 in favor of the High school lads. This is due to several reasons. These are lack of support, lack of practice and interfering with the track work. We have no complaint to offer as to the result but we should give our team better support and hope to see more encouraging results in the future." After beating both Chemawa and Salem High in Salem, the Beavers earned their first home victory ever on May 2, 1907 by drubbing Willamette 12-0. OAC added wins over Chemawa and Oregon at home by the end of the 1907 season, and the Beavers' all-time home record has been over .500 ever since. The spring of 1910 saw Goss Stadium at Coleman Field graced by a coach who had already managed a World Series winner. Fielder Jones, who led the Chicago White Sox to the 1906 title, had left the club over a salary spat While looking after business interests in Portland, he found time to lead OAC to the Northwest Collegiate title. Goss Stadium at Coleman Field's brush with pro baseball's color barrier came in 1921, when the Beavers played host to the New York Colored Sox. That team of black professional players was making its spring training trip up the West Coast and included many of the Kansas City Monarchs, including the late "Bullet" Joe Rogan, who entered the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1998. The Barometer's preview of the game quoted a telegram from New York Giants manager John McGraw as saying, "If I could whitewash that aggregation I could use every one of them on my team. Only their color keeps them out of the major leagues." The Colored Sox took a 3-0 win, with Rogan hitting a double and a home run. In the 1920s, it wasn't unusual for Japanese universities to send their baseball teams on tours of theWest Coast. Meiji University visited Goss Stadium at Coleman Field twice; the Beavers won 7-0 in 1924 and Meiji took a 13-6 win in 1929. In the 1980s and early 1990s, the Canadian Baseball Institute - the country's junior national team - often visited OSU for exhibitions. In the fall of 1992, the Canadians' attention was split between the field and radios in the dugout and bullpen as they listened to the Toronto Blue Jays win the World Series. Earlier in 1992, the Beavers' Opening Day win over Concordia had been buzzed by a radio-controlled airplane. The game was interrupted briefly when the plane took a nosedive into left field. One former Beaver pitcher from the 1920s remains at Goss Stadium at Coleman Field literally. Burton Riley's sons crept into the

ballpark late one night in 1993 and scattered the lefthander's ashes on the pitcher's mound, figuring it was the perfect place for him. Before World War II curtailed baseball at Oregon State for two seasons, the Beavers played teams from nearby Camp Adair in 1943, winning 3-1 and losing 8-4. Two local minor league teams - the Salem Senators and Eugene Emeralds - were frequent visitors in the 1940s and 1950s, with the Beavers holding their own as the pros tuned up for their seasons. Many pro careers can be traced back to Goss Stadium at Coleman Field. Beavers who went on to play in the Major Leagues were Scott Anderson (lettered at OSU 1981-84), Lute Barnes (1967-69), Bob Beall (1968-70), Jamie Burke (1992-93), Ed Coleman (1924, 26), Jeff Doyle (1975-77), Glenn Elliott (1941, 43), Ken Forsch (1967-68), Don Johnson (1932), John Leovich (1940), Steve Lyons (1979-81), Howard Maple (1926, 28-29), Wes Schulmerich (1925-27), Mike Thurman (199294), Chris Wakeland (1995-96) and Jim Wilson
(1980-82).

and physical conditioning. The Merritt Truax Indoor Center was designed with ample windows to provide daylight for workouts, and the brick exterior blends with Oregon State's campus. The structure is named in honor of Merritt Truax, a 1934 Oregon State graduate who founded one of the nation's leading commercial and retail gasoline outlets. Oregon State's baseball team also has the use of two indoor batting cages and pitching mounds located in McAlexander Fieldhouse, just across the street from Goss Stadium at Coleman Field. The building served as OSU's indoor facility until the Truax Center opened.

When the weather forces an Oregon State practice session inside, the Beavers are able to use one of the country's finest indoor practice facilities - the Merritt Truax Indoor Center. The building opened in September, 2001. The 85,000-square-foot building is large enough to house a regulation football field. The entire playing surface is Fieldturf, which has earned a reputation as the artificial turf that plays most like a natural surface. In addition, the building is equipped with four batting cages. Along with the Beaver baseball team, the building is used by OSU's football, softball, men's soccer, women's soccer, men's golf and women's golf teams for practice

PATCASEY.

.

Head coach 11th year (George Fox, 1990)
In its 11th season under Pat Casey, Oregon State's baseball program is out to take its tradition of success to new levels. "This program can be in the top 25 in the country and compete for a regional on a regular basis," Casey said. "We need to be fundamentally sound, and be able to adjust to our personnel. You have to do things right to win, and that's something I stress." Casey's OSU teams have a record of 295225-4, good for a winning percentage of.567. That includes a 38-12-1 record in 1997; that team's winning percentage of 755 was among the very best in Beaver baseball history. Casey was also named Co-Coach of the Year in the Pacific-10 Northern Division for the 1997 season. The Beavers have set numerous school records during Casey's time at OSU; he and his coaching staff are aiming to take Oregon State even further. "Being a member of the Pac-10, we're part of the best baseball conference in the country," Casey said. "We've made great strides at Oregon State in our level of play, our facilities, fan interest ... it's an exciting place to be, and the program is getting stronger each season." Casey was also instrumental in the drive to build Goss Stadium at Coleman Field, which opened at Oregon State's longtime ballpark in the spring of 1999. The OSU head coach was heavily-involved in fundraising for the $2.3 million project; when the go-ahead was given for construction, he had a hand in the ballpark's design to assure that it would be one of the most user-friendly facilities in college baseball. In 2002, the ballpark also received its first set of lights for night play. Oregon State hired Casey in the summer of 1994, asking him to follow in the large footsteps of Jack Riley, who retired after 22 seasons as head coach. Most of the key players from OSU's 1994 Northern Division pennant-winning team had graduated, but Casey's first season saw the Beavers battle to a winning record of 25-24-1 in 1995. That set the stage for one of the finest three-year runs in the long history of baseball at Oregon State. In 1996, the Beavers posted a 32-16-1

The Casey family
record and went into the final weekend of the season needing to sweep a four-game series from Washington to tie for the pennant and take a postseason berth. With three straight wins, OSU took the race to the final day before dropping the season finale. In 1997, Oregon State set a school record for wins in the regular season with a record of 38-12-1. OSU again went into the final weekend of the season with postseason hopes In 1998, Oregon State broke into the national rankings for the first time in four years and went 35-14-1. The season included series sweeps of Arizona, which was ranked in the top 10 at the time, and UCLA.

After a tough 1999 campaign, the Beavers rebounded to go 28-27 in 2000 against what may have been the toughest schedule in school history. OSU entertained postseason hopes after winning three straight Pacific- 10 series midway through the season. In 2001, Oregon State again made a strong bid for the postseason, finishing with a 31-24 record. OSU had five wins over teams ranked in the final Baseball Weekly/USA Today coaches poll of the regular season - including a series win over Arizona State - and the Beavers were 10-9 against teams that were selected to NCAA regionals. The 2002 season saw the Beavers again

He also lettered in basketball one season. After being drafted in the 10th round by the San Diego Padres in 1980, Casey played seven professional seasons. He reached Class AAA with the Calgary Cannons in 1985-86 and the Portland Beavers in 1987. After concluding his professional playing career, Casey took over George Fox's baseball program; while coaching the baseball team, he also played basketball for the Bruins while completing his degree. Casey was born March 17, 1959 in McMinnville, Ore. He graduated in 1977 from Newberg High, where he starred in football, basketball and baseball. Casey enjoys fishing, camping and spending time with his family. He and his wife, Susan, have four children - Jonathan (19), Brett (18), Ellie (14) and Joseph (7).

I think I admire Pat the most for his desire to make each kid he coaches as competitive as he is - which is an almost unreachable goal. Pat was one of the great athletes ever to come out of the State of Oregon ... he should have played in the big leagues, and had he been moved to catcher, he probably would have played in the bigs as long as I did.

2005 SEASON

OSU finds talent in a mix of old and new
Beavers determined to

make the improvement necessary to earn a place in the NCAA tournament
There will be quite a few new faces and higher expectations for Oregon State when the 2005 baseball season opens, but the Beavers' goal remains the same this spring: A place in the NCAA Regionals.

"Our challenge is a little different than last year, because last year we had a little more experience going in," said OSU head coach Pat Casey, now in his 11th season with the Beavers. "This year, we're going to put some faces out there who have never been there, and even if they're a junior college guy who has played a couple years of college baseball or a high school guy, we've got some kids who have never played a Division I game and we have to be prepared for that. "They need a little game experience, but we've worked tremendously hard toward some common goals and that's going to pay

off for us."
Last season, OSU was 31-22 overall and 10-14 in the Pacific-10 to tie for sixth place. The Beavers have 17 returning lettermen from that club but will be looking to a number of new players to contribute. Even with the number of newcomers, it's far from a rebuilding year for the Beavers. OSU has a pair of preseason All-Americans to build around in sophomore pitcher Dallas Buck (3-6 record, 5 06 earned run average, 6 saves in 2004) and junior outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury (.352 batting average, 3 home runs, 20 runs batted in, 20-for-24 stolen bases). Baseball America magazine named Buck, a righthander, to its preseason All-America second team and Ellsbury to its third team. After earning Summer All-America first team honors for his performance in the Cape Cod League in 2004, Buck is the marquee name on a pitching staff that figures to be one of OSU's strengths. Three more sophomores figure to make a huge contribution - lefthander Kevin Gunderson (6-2, 2.90, 3), who was named to Collegiate Baseball's Freshman AllAmerica team in 2004; righthander Jonah Nickerson (4-3, 5.67); and righthander Jake McCormick (0-0, 3 23). "We really haven't nailed down people that

Kevin Gunderson
are specifically going to be starters or what role they're going to be in, but I think we have some pretty good depth on the staff," Casey said. "Some guys who have never pitched Division I baseball are going to have to be part of that. But we need some people who have been here to help us out, and we need to establish that rotation. We feel very good about Dallas Buck being in that rotation, we know Kevin Gunderson could be one of our starters if that's the best role for him but he's so effective in so many other roles that we just have to figure out what's best for the team. Jonah Nickerson is another guy who could really help us in a number of roles on our staff." Those who could step in as key figures on the mound include junior righthander Nate Fogle (5-2, 1.84; all-league first team junior college in 2004), junior lefthanderAnton Maxwell (2-0, 2.82; all-league second team JC), freshman righthander Daniel Turpen (9-1, 0 98, all-state first team high school) and freshman righthander Eddie Kunz (all-state first team HS). At the plate, the Beavers will continue to evolve from a power-hitting club to one that relies more on speed and execution to score. "I do feel that we can get runners started. I feel our team speed continues to improve, and I think we've got a few more options as far as right-left matchups," Casey said. "There are some great competitive battles going on for some spots, and that makes it good. I think we've got a little more depth." Oregon State should be able to depend on production from its outfield, starting with Ellsbury in center; he was an All-Pacific- 10 first team selection in 2004. He earned an invitation to the USA Baseball National Team Trials last year despite missing part of the season due to injury, and Baseball America named him the 17th-best pro prospect in the prestigious Cape Cod League in 2004. The likely starter in rightfield will be junior

OREGON STATE BASEBALL GUIDE

Mike Lissman
Tyler Graham (.346, 0, 9, 7-for-9 SBs), who made the switch from infield to outfield in 2004 and moved into the starting lineup late in the season. Sophomore Mike Lissman (349, 8, 34) provides some power in the leftfield spot after a solid collegiate debut. Three starters return in the infield - junior third baseman Shea McFeely (.294, 5, 38), junior second baseman Chris Kunda (.245, 0, 13) and senior first baseman Andy Jenkins (.274, 6, 30). Kunda will be pushed for the job by junior transfer Ryan Gipson (.358, 16-for16 SBs; all-league first team JC) and Jenkins will battle sophomore Cole Gillespie (.290, 1, 4), who got a number of starts down the stretch in 2004. The leader for the shortstop position is freshman Darwin Barney (.611, 8, 25, 19-19 SBs; all-state first team HS). At catcher, junior Billy Munich (.128, 0, 5) spent the last two seasons as the backup and will compete for the job with redshirt freshman Casey Priseman and freshman Rob Folsom (.426, 6, 22; all-state first team HS). Sophomore Mitch Canham (.167, 0, 0) could see time at catcher or first base. The designated hitter spot could go to senior Chris Campos (.286, 7, 34) or junior transfer Joey Ledesma (280 JC). "Defensively, I think the outfield is going to be as good as anybody in the Pac-10 as a whole," Casey said. "I know we'll be better defensively up the middle than we were last year. Obviously, we need to have somebody establish themselves behind the plate - that's a defensive position and we need someone there to show that they can do that on a consistent basis. Our corner guys are going to need to be a little more offensive. Shea had a

Dallas Buck
good year defensively last year; he needs to be a guy who drives in runs for us. At first base, we've got a couple different people who can play there.

Andy Jenkins
a tough loss. With Jake Postlewait and Aaron Mathews and Paul Richie, we had some great leadership; now it's time for some people who have the same type of ability to do that. "Our captains are Andy Jenkins and Jacoby Ellsbury and Kevin Gunderson and Mike Lissman, and all four of those guys have the ability to lead us and all four are diversified in what they do for our club." When it comes to overall team makeup, Casey likes what he sees. "I think we've got a great mix of guys," Casey said. "I like the fact that we have a pretty good energy for the game. I think we have enough new faces that there's a push to get better and we have enough guys who had success last year that there's a sense of confidence in what we're doing." OSU has put together strong campaigns over the past several years only to have postseason bids slip away down the stretch. The aim now is to combine another solid start with the type of finish that will result in a trip to the NCAA Regionals. "The main thing is staying consistent and believing in what we're doing when we get to conference play," Casey said. "You might play 12 straight games, four series in a row, against top 20 clubs in your own conference and you can't be in a mode where you don't play well during that time. You've got to get consistent. "We've got to stay healthy. We've got to have people pitch at the front of the game and have people finish for us. Last year I thought we were just a couple defensive plays away from being in the tournament and we've worked hard to become better defensively. "Our guys should be ready to go."

"We want to be solid, but I think we'll
have a much better defensive club than we had last year overall. We'll run some balls down, and the key to everything is to minimize the runners we put on base through walks and errors." In 2004, the Beavers were blessed with some strong, experienced leaders but most of those players graduated or were drafted.

"That's the thing we don't know," Casey said of OSU's leadership. "We haven't been out on the road, we haven't had a good win or

O 4 OREGON STATE SEASON IN REVIEW

OREGON STATE BASEBALL GUIDE

2005

Fast start, not-so-fast finish for Beavers
Oregon State puts itself in contention for tourney,

then finds rough going as season draws to a close
Oregon State put together another strong spring in 2004, posting its eighth winning season in the last 10 years and its sixth 30-win season in that decade. OSU (31-22 overall, 1014 Pacific- 10) climbed as high as 15 games

over the .500 mark before a tough month of May kept them out of the NCAA Regionals. Nonetheless, the Beavers took their postseason chances into the final weekend of the season. OSU tied for sixth place in the Pacific- 10 - two notches higher than it had been picked in a preseason poll of Pac- 10 coaches - in a conference that sent five teams to NCAA Regionals. "We took some big steps this season," Oregon State head coach Pat Caesy said. "We had a group that had some experience and leadership in some key places, but overall we had a pretty young team and we had a lot of guys making the adjustment to playing at this level. They did a good job of that and we showed we were capable of playing with anybody in the country on a given day. A lot of the things learned this year can make us an even better team in the next few seasons. "There were some disappointments at the end of the season, but I think it showed just how competitive we are in the best conference in the country." Some of the highlights from 2004: Oregon State's .585 overall winning percentage was the Beavers' best since 1998, and OSU's 31 wins matched its most since 1998 By winning its first seven games of the season, OSU had its fastest start since 1962. The Beavers were the last remaining unbeaten team in the Pac-10, not dropping a game until Feb. 28. Oregon State had three first-team AllPacific-10 selections in senior pitcher Jake Postlewait, junior outfielder Aaron Mathews and sophomore outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury; that was the most first-team picks for OSU since the Beavers also had three in 2001. Freshman lefthander Kevin Gunderson was named to the Louisville Slugger Freshman All-America team. The squad was selected by the staff of Collegiate Baseball newspaper.

Aaron Mathews
Postlewait and Ellsbury were named to Baseball America magazine's Midseason AllAmerica Team. Ellsbury was invited to the USA Baseball National Team Trials. The six Beavers selected in the Major League Baseball draft - Andy Baldwin, Postlewait, Kyle Aselton, Jared Sanders, Mathews and Nathan Pendley - were the most ever taken from OSU, topping the four taken in 1977 and 1998. Oregon State had at least a .500 record against every other NCAA Division I team in the Pacific Northwest. The Beavers were 2-2 against in-state rival Portland, 4-2 against
Washington, 2-1 against Washington State and 3-1 against Gonzaga. OSU was third in the Pac-10 in attendance, trailing large-market teams Arizona State and Stanford. The Beavers drew an average of 1,142 fans per game, in the top 50 for all of NCAA Division I. Oregon State also drew the two biggest crowds to its home ballpark since Goss Stadium at Coleman Field was renovated prior to the 1999 season. Oregon State won 3 of its 4 road series in Pacific-10 play. That included a series win at Southern California, the Beavers' first-ever on the Trojans' home field. OSU's team earned run average of 4.65

Ben Rowe
was the Beavers' lowest since 1997, and over 1 2/3 runs per game lower than in 2003. The Beavers broke out a new set of orange jerseys. It was the first time they'd worn that color since the 1984 season. Postlewait matched the second-highest single-season win total in OSU baseball history by posting an 11-3 record. Mathews' had one of the longest hitting streaks in school history, a 21-gamer from

Paul Richie
The season was the final one at Oregon State for seniors Postlewait, Richie, Ben Rowe, Jared Sanders, Nathan Pendley, Mike Hass and Matt Hernandez. Postlewait, Richie and Rowe were all at OSU for their entire four-year collegiate careers. "Those guys will really be missed, and not just because of their abilities on the field," Casey said. "They are really solid people who grew into being leaders of this team, and I think they showed the younger guys in our program what it's going to take to be successful at this level." OREGON STATE NOTES: With its 31 wins, OSU surpassed its win total for the 2003 campaign, when the Beavers went 25-28. OSU posted its third 30-win season in the last 4 years ... OSU's 10 wins in Pac-10 play topped

OSU had gone over 3 years without a pitcher recording 10 strikeouts in a game until Jonah Nickerson fanned 10 Washington Huskies in 5 innings of a 7-4 win on April 12. The last Beaver to accomplish the feat had been Thad Johnson, who had 14 strikeouts at California on April 6, 2001 ... OSU went over 3 seasons without a player hitting more than 1 homer in a game, then had it happen on back-

to-back days on April 9-April 10 when Mike Lissman and Chris Campos managed it against Stanford. The last Beaver to homer more than once in a game had been Andy Jarvis, who hit 3 vs. Washington State on March 11, 2001 ... Oregon State's 25 runs against Portland in a 25-4 win on March 31 was the Beavers' highest total since a 27-4 win at Washington early in the 2000 season, and it tied for the eighthhighest scoring game in OSU baseball history ... Shea McFeely's 8 RBIs in a 25-4 win at Portland on March 31 were just l RBI away from the school record of 9 set by Ken Bowen in a 36-12 win at Chico State in 1985 ... Mike Hass' 3-run pinch-hit homer in a 25-4 win at Portland on March 31 was the Beavers' first pinch-hit homer since Jason McBride's drive against Washington in a 17-3 home win early in the 2001 season ... OSU hit just 15 homers through its first 22 games; the Beavers then hit 4 per game in back-to-back games against
