PGE Park to host OSU baseball

    The Oregon State Beavers will play four non-conference baseball games at PGE Park in 2008, it was announced today.

    The slate of Oregon State games is highlighted by the Papé Grand Slam, pitting the two-time defending College World Series champion against the Georgia Bulldogs in a three-game series at PGE Park, Feb. 29 – March 2. The Beavers will later take on the Portland Pilots in an additional non-conference game at PGE Park on April 15.

    Preferred tickets for the Oregon State games at PGE Park are available as part of select Portland Beavers season-ticket packages. Single-game tickets for the Papé Grand Slam, which are $10 for adults and $5 for youths age 3-18 and Oregon State students who present their student ID on game day, will go on sale Jan. 18 at area Ticketmaster outlets, online at or by phone at (503) 224-4400. Tickets will also be available at the PGE Park box office beginning Feb. 18. All single-game tickets for the Papé Grand Slam are general admission.

    “What the Oregon State University baseball program and coach Pat Casey have accomplished over the past two seasons is truly remarkable,” said Merritt Paulson, president and general manager of the Portland Beavers at PGE Park. “I could not be more pleased to welcome OSU to PGE Park this spring and to allow more Portlanders to see the nation’s NCAA champions live.”

    Under Casey, the Beavers reached the College World Series in 2005 and achieved the pinnacle of national prominence the following year by surviving a string of elimination games on their way to their first national championship. Oregon State duplicated the feat in 2007, becoming the first team in a decade to repeat as College World Series champion by winning all five of its CWS games and capping its impressive run with a 9-3 victory over North Carolina in the title game.

    PGE Park, located in downtown Portland, is home to the Triple-A Portland Beavers of the Pacific Coast League, the Portland Timbers of the United Soccer Leagues First Division and the Portland State University football program. The multipurpose stadium, originally constructed in 1926, annually plays host to a wide variety of additional events and activities, including high school football, concerts, international soccer exhibitions, youth soccer, community gatherings and company outings.
