Main article: Goss Stadium at Coleman Field

Goss Stadium at Coleman Field is the home of Oregon State Baseball. Except for the pitcher's mound, the entire infield uses artificial turf, and the outfield is also artificial. In 2015, the Jacoby Ellsbury Players' Locker Room (in name of Jacoby Ellsbury who donated $1 million to the project) was completed which finished a string of upgrades to Goss Stadium.
