After a nail-biting 4-3 victory over Kansas State on Monday, Pat Casey and company have a date in baseball’s heartland, Omaha, Neb., where the Beavers will be one of eight teams left standing for college baseball’s national championship.
It will be Oregon State’s fifth total appearance in the College World Series, and first since the team won it all in 2007. The Beavers, a perennial baseball powerhouse, have been to Omaha four times in the last nine years. They won another NCAA championship in 2006, the first of a back-to-back title sequence when they became the fifth team in history to win two years in a row.
The Beavers (50-11 overall) will open the CWS against Mississippi State at 12 p.m. PT Saturday.
Per OSU Athletics, “Saturday’s College World Series opener is slated to air live on ESPN2. The game can also be found online on ESPN3.com. The Beaver Sports Radio Network will also carry the game with the following stations airing it: KEJO 1240-AM in Corvallis/Albany, FOX Sports Radio Portland (620-AM), KICE 940-AM (Bend), KSKR 1490-AM in Roseburg, KAKT 104.7-FM (Grants Pass, Medford), KLAD 960-AM (Klamath Falls), KBZY 1490-AM (Salem) and KKNX 840-AM (Eugene).”
