CORVALLIS, Ore. – The Oregon State baseball team is slotted to play on television 16 times during the 2014 season, with one game slated for ESPNU and the other 15 on the Pac-12 Networks. The full spring baseball television schedule was announced on Wednesday.
Eleven of the 16 games will come from games played at Goss Stadium at Coleman Field, and five of the 16 will be against Oregon. That includes the ESPNU appearance, which is a 1 p.m. start on April 27 at Goss Stadium.
Additionally, three games may be added toward the end of the season. The Pac-12 Conference has reserved each season-ending series as potential broadcast opportunities. For the Beavers, that series is May 23-25 and will require Friday’s and Saturday’s games to be slotted as 4 p.m. starts. The season finale is now at noon, although all three games could be changed due to which series or games are picked up.
The Beavers’ home television slate includes the Friday, March 21 (now 7:05 p.m.) and Sunday, March 23 (12:05 p.m.) games against Arizona State. The team’s entire May 9-11 series against UCLA (Friday-7:35 p.m., Saturday-7:05 p.m., Sunday-3:05 p.m.) will be broadcast, as will the entire series against Washington. That series runs May 16-18 and will now have times as following: Friday and Saturday at 4:05 p.m. and Sunday at 3:05 p.m.
The team’s annual series with Oregon takes place at Goss Stadium April 25-27. The first two games will air on the Pac-12 Networks, with start times of 7:05 p.m. and 7:35 p.m., respectively. The finale will air on ESPNU at 1:05 p.m.
The Beavers’ lone conference series away from home to be broadcast is the March 28-30 matchup at Arizona. Times for the games are now the following: 7 p.m. on Friday, 4 p.m. on Saturday and 12 p.m. on Sunday.
Oregon State’s two non-conference games to be broadcast are the two road games against the Ducks. The first, May 6, is a 6 p.m. start. The second, and final non-conference regular season game for the Beavers, is May 20 and starts at 7 p.m.
This is the second season the Beavers have been broadcast on the Pac-12 Networks. Year one saw the Beavers on the Pac-12 Networks eight times, with Oregon State going 6-2.
Including other TV appearances, OSU was 10-5 when its game was broadcast in 2013.
