Beavers Ranked In Top 20 Of All Major Polls; OSU Readying For Maine Series
March 16, 2010
CORVALLIS, Ore. - Each of the five major collegiate baseball polls have been released, and the Oregon State baseball team finds itself ranked in the top 20 in every one of them.
Oregon State carries a 10-3 record into this week's play, which starts Friday night against Maine. OSU will play a four-game series against the Black Bears, who are 7-8 this season, but one of their victories came against top 25 squad, North Carolina, just a few weeks back.
OSU and Maine will play two Saturday, starting at 1 p.m. PT, and Sunday's series finale starts at 1 p.m. as well.
The Beavers are ranked as high as 13th by Collegiate Baseball, and their average ranking for the five polls is 17th. Oregon State is 15th according to the ESPN/USA Today Coaches Poll, 17th by Rivals.com and No. 18 in both the Baseball America and National College Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA) rankings.
Oregon State has been ranked in each poll every week of the 2010 season. However, this is the first week the Beavers find themselves in the top 20 of each poll.
At Saturday's game against Maine, members of the GenBeavs can get outfield seating for free and their parents can purchase outfield tickets (seats located beyond the right field fence) for $10 apiece.
After Sunday's game, fans will have the opportunity to get autographs from the Oregon State freshman class.
Tickets remain for each game of the series, and Saturday's doubleheader requires only one ticket (it will be good for both games). Tickets can be purchased by visiting osubeavers.com, the ticket office at legendary Gill Coliseum or calling 1-800-GOBEAVS. Please note that the OSU ticket office is now open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Fans can also purchase tickets the day of the game at the Goss Stadium ticket office, which opens 2 ½ hours before first pitch.
For fans who can't make it to the game, listen live on the Beaver Sports Radio Network and on Beaver Nation Online (osubeavers.com) where a webcast will also be available. Mike Parker returns to call the action.
