The campaign to raise funds in support of Oregon State Baseball and a new players lounge will come to a close Wednesday morning at 8:59 a.m., and to say the response from Beaver Nation has been phenomenal would be a major understatement.
To date, 219 donations have accounted for $92,835 in support of this project. Our public goal was $75k and we are currently at 123 percent of said goal. Both of these numbers are records for athletic crowd funding efforts at Oregon State, but with less than 48 hours to go, amazingly, we are only $7,165 away from reaching $100,000. Whether you are an alumni, season ticket holder or Dugout Club member, this is something awesome to be a part of, and saying you helped get us over the $100k mark would be very special.
The Oregon State baseball team wanted to send their own special thanks so they created a few videos pointed directly at you for helping their program get this campaign to where it is today. Please click the following link and then click each of the three pics corresponding with the tweets to listen to our student-athletes' messages to you.

As we come to the end of this campaign, we want to again thank all who have been a part of it. There is still time to help OSU Baseball get to that mark of $100k raised in support of a project that is being constructed in honor of Bert & Shirley Babb, and will be put to use by a great group of young men as they strive to be champions on the field, in the classroom and in their lives.
