Oregon State University Baseball Players Who Made it to the Major Leagues

Baseball Almanac is pleased to present a comprehensive chart of every Oregon State University alumni who played baseball at Oregon State University AND made it to the Major League level.

"I only thought one time they (Atlanta Braves) might get a hit (during his no hitter), in the eighth inning (with one out) when somebody ( Dale Murphy ) hit a line shot to the left side. I was afraid it was in the hole." - Ken Forsch in The Houston Chronicle (April 7, 1979)

Oregon State University M.L.B. Player Alumni



The Oregon State University baseball program started in 1907, Wes Schulmerich was the first former Beaver to make it to the Major League level. Names that appear in bold print are in the Oregon State University Hall of Fame.
So how did Oregon State University become known as the Beavers? Did the University have any other team nicknames? This excerpt has the answers:

The nickname for Oregon State University is named after the state animal — the Beaver.

In the early days of the university, Oregon State's athletic teams were known as the Aggies. When orange uniforms replaced drab sweatshirt-gray and tan jerseys, the teams were referred to as the Orangemen.

In 1916, when the school yearbook was renamed "The Beaver," the name Beaver became associated with the school. It is believed the press also had some influence in changing the name, particularly L.H. Gregory of the Oregonian newspaper.
