Mitch Canham, an All-America catcher and two-time national champion, has been selected Oregon State’s 21st head baseball coach in the 112-year history of the program, Beaver Vice President and Director of Athletics Scott Barnes announced Thursday. Canham was the captain for Oregon State’s 2006 and 2007 College World Series champions and was a part of the 2005 Beaver club that started the most significant 15-year stretch in program history that has included five Pac-12 Conference titles and 13 postseason appearances. “What an incredible day and a dream come true,” said Canham. “Since stepping on the OSU campus in the summer of 2002, I felt a part of the Beaver family. The baseball program, Corvallis community, athletic department, faculty, donors, and fans have been a huge part in transforming my life and helping me become the man I am today.
