Oregon State's 15-practice session culminates with the annual Spring Game Friday, April 26 at Reser Stadium. The Spring Game will be televised live in prime time at 7 p.m. nationally on the Pac-12 Networks.

OSU ended the 2012 season ranked No. 19 in the final USA Today/Coaches Poll and No. 20 by the Associated Press. The team returns a total of 302 combined starts in 2013.

Spring practices at Oregon State are scheduled to be held from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. on April 1, 2, 4, 5, 8, 9, 11, 12, 15, 16, 18, 19, 22, 24. (The Spring Game on April 26 is at 7 p.m.). Practices are open to the public and held on the OSU campus.

In the meantime and as you wait for spring drills to kick off on Monday, the next two games on the Beaver baseball diamond should be interesting. OSU booted the ball all around against San Diego on Thursday, dropping just their third game of the season and committing five errors.

The series continues Friday night at 6 p.m. with the first pitch of Saturday finale's slated for 1 p.m. on Saturday.

San Diego has had the Beavs, number in recent years, taking four straight from the Beavs dating back to 2008. Oregon State has been outscored 34-12 during the streak.
