A graduate of Oregon’s Crescent Valley High School and former member of its robotics team, Cody Gotchall is enrolled at Linn-Benton Community College (LBCC), where he is taking mathematics classes. Cody Gotchall is a passionate fan of the OSU Beaver baseball team and its coach Pat Casey.

In May, OSU secured its third Pac-12 conference title in five seasons with a 5-4 win over the Oregon Ducks, completing a three-game sweep over its state rival. The win was the team’s 40th of the season and 1,000th career win for Casey, who signed with OSU in 1995 after spending five seasons as coach of George Fox University. Drew Rasmussen started the game for OSU and pitched three innings while only allowing one hit and striking out five Oregon batters. It was his first start since undergoing Tommy John Surgery in 2016.

Since clinching the conference title, OSU won its next 11 games, including two NCAA Super Regionals wins over Vanderbilt. Casey now has a career coaching record of 1011-558-6 and is hoping to guide the Beavers to its first NCAA Title since 2007.

Cody Gotchall has been studying accounting, data analytics, and mathematics in Linn-Benton Community College’s iLearn Online degree and certificate program. Having previously studied at Oregon State University (OSU), Cody Gotchall remains a fan of the OSU baseball team.

OSU hosts several baseball camps as part of its attempt to get youth involved with baseball. Designed for players between second and 12th grades, these camps provide high-quality baseball instruction.

During the course of a Beaver Baseball Camp, campers have the opportunity not only to develop their individual skills and knowledge of the sport, but also to participate in actual baseball games. Moreover, they receive guidance about improving themselves off the field.

The Oregon State Beaver Baseball Camps are held during the winter, summer, and fall. Winter camps are held at the Truax Center, while summer and fall camps are held at OSU in Goss Stadium at Coleman Field and at the softball field. Occasionally, other venues are used, too.

OSU’s head coach and his assistants, along with other junior college and high school coaches, lead the camps. Campers are expected to bring their own equipment, and overnight campers must bring towels, sleeping bags, and other overnight necessities.
