Goss Stadium at Coleman Field is the home of Oregon State Baseball. Except for the pitcher's mound, the entire infield uses artificial turf, and the outfield is also artificial. In 2015, the Jacoby Ellsbury Players' Locker Room (in name of Jacoby Ellsbury who donated $1 million to the project) was completed which finished a string of upgrades to Goss Stadium.
Oregon State players have been named All-Americans 34 times, as of the end of the 2018 season. The university recognizes All-Americans as selected by the American Baseball Coaches Association, Baseball America magazine, the Collegiate Baseball Newspaper, the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association, and USA Today/Sports Weekly.
