Today was so reminicent of 2006. Thousand's of Beaver fans showed up at Portland's Pioneer Courthouse Square to honor the Oregon State Baseball team. Like 2006, this team battled through the elimination bracket. They won four games.....then had two more elimination games in the finals against Arkansas!
They won those as we all know. A tired but excited group of baseball players stood on the stage in Portland and received repeated long ovations for their tremendous feat. Senior Jack Anderson from nearby Lake Oswego said he was at the 2006 rally and said after that he wanted to be the Beavers and now as a graduated senior he fulfilled a life long dream to hold up the CWS trophy. Be sure to check out Pat Casey's eloquent speech before about 7,000 members of Beaver Nation!!
