Goss Stadium


430 Southwest Langton Place, Corvallis, Oregon

The OSU baseball team has laced up on the same site since 1907, boasting the oldest baseball diamond among PAC-10 schools and one of the oldest for colleges and universities in the country. It wasn’t until 1998 that the “baseball field” was renamed Goss Stadium at Coleman Field – and when it was renamed it was also significantly remodeled! Look right next door and you’ll now see Dixon Recreation Center; however, from 1913 until 1953 this was the site informally known as "The College Field," where the school played football. It was officially name Bell Field in 1921 to honor John Richard Newton Bell.
