New York Yankees center fielder, Madras native and former Oregon State student-athlete Jacoby Ellsbury has committed $1 million to help Oregon State’s baseball program expand its locker room facilities.
Goss Stadium is the oldest continuous ballpark in the nation, having been on OSU’s campus since 1907. The stadium has undergone several renovations in recent years, most recently in 2009 when 1,000 seats were added.
The proposed $2.8 million project will expand the locker room, update the equipment room, add team meeting space and include both a new recruiting area and a centralized main entrance.
The OSU locker room facilities will be named in honor of Ellsbury.
