Baseball To Have An Additional Game Televised
April 13, 2010
CORVALLIS, Ore. - Oregon State Athletics announced Tuesday that an additional baseball game will be televised during its Civil War series with Oregon at Goss Stadium.
The series finale, May 9, will be televised in a joint partnership between the Beavers and Ducks. The game will air live on Comcast SportsNet Northwest, and then will be tape delayed at a later date on FSN Northwest, Oregon State's regional television partner.
The game remains a 1 p.m. PT start, and features the broadcast crew of Joe Giansante as the play-by-play announcer and Jim Wilson as the color analyst. Wilson lettered for Oregon State from 1980-82, and holds the school's single-season home runs record with 21 in 1982. He is an Oregon State Hall of Famer.
Wilson, who also played for Major League Baseball's Seattle Mariners, has appeared on Oregon State broadcasts in year's past and has been in the team's radio booth for select games the past few seasons.
With the announcement, Oregon State will have eight of its games through the rest of the regular season televised, with six available on FSN Northwest. The first game is April 24 at Washington, and will be followed by May 8 vs. Oregon, May 15 vs. Washington and May 29 against Arizona (all three are available on KEZI 9.2 in the Eugene area). Oregon State will also appear on TV on a national tape-delayed basis May 21 on FSN when the Beavers visit Arizona State.
Oregon State's two non-conference Civil War contests - April 27 at Oregon and May 26 at Portland's PGE Park - will be televised on Comcast SportsNet Northwest.
The Beavers have a strong history on television. Since 1990, OSU has been televised a total of 77 times, posting a 52-25 record. Since 2008, OSU is 6-1 in televised games.
The Beavers are ranked 18th in the Baseball America rankings this week, and OSU starter Greg Peavey is celebrating his second Pac-10 Pitcher of the Week honor this season after spinning a masterful two-hit performance against No. 3 UCLA Friday night.
Oregon State stays home this weekend to face Stanford in a three-game series starting Friday night. First pitch Friday is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. PT.
Tickets are still available for the series and can be purchased by calling 1-800-GOBEAVS, visiting the ticket office at legendary Gill Coliseum or by going online at osubeavers.com.
