Varsity baseball began at Oregon State University in 1907 (then Oregon Agricultural College) with a game against Salem High and completed its first 100 years with a win over the University of North Carolina on June 26, 2006 at the College World Series to win the National Championship.

A baseball game versus Monmouth Christian College on April 14, 1883 was OSU’s first intercollegiate athletic event. Several tries were made at starting the sport over the next 24 years, but most seem to have been thwarted by the Pacific Northwest’s wet springs.

This commemoration of the centennial of OSU baseball is a collaborative project of the University Libraries and Intercollegiate Athletics and includes materials from the OSU Archives and OSU Sports Information.
