New from History Press Sports: Oregon State Baseball

Books, New Titles, Oregon, Sports

History Press is excited to announce another Oregon addition to our Sports list!

In the postseasons of 2005, 2006 and 2007, the Oregon State Beavers baseball team achieved a seemingly impossible dream and forever changed the culture of Northwest sports. After nearly a century of dismissal as a wet-weather team, unable to compete with the southern baseball belt on the national stage, a run of three College World Series appearances and back-to-back titles earned the Beavers national respect. Inspired by his own coverage of the dramatic seasons, Corvallis Gazette-Times sportswriter Cliff Kirkpatrick recounts the program’s rise to prominence and lasting legacy. Filled with firsthand insights from players and coaches, photos of the turning point moments and the Orange and Black–filled stands, this retrospective captures the magic of Oregon State’s three-season run.
