The Corvallis Knights are a member of the summer collegiate West Coast League. They play their games at Goss Stadium, also the home of the Oregon State Beavers. The stadium opened in April 1999. John and Evie Goss were major contibutors to the construction of the stadium. The Knights are named after Penny Knight, their top sponsor who is the wife of Nike co-founder Phil Knight. The Knights were victorious over the Walla Walla Sweets. The box score was Sweets R-4, H-6, E-0 and the Knights R-10, H-15, E-1. The field lines are RF-330', CF-400', and LF-330'. The infield is Field Turf with a dirt mound and the outfield is natural grass. There are 4 rows of seats below the aisle and seats in the section behind homeplate above the aisle. There are bleacher seats with backs in the rest of the stadium and 6 suites on the first baseline. The bullpen is hidden at the end of the seating down both baselines. The league uses 3 umpires. If the Batter of the Game gets a hit then everyone gets a coupon at the end of the game. One bunt died fair on the 3rd baseline. This was surprising on the turf infield. During the bottom of the 4th the Sweets pitcher and catcher didn't call time-out. The Knights runner scored from 3rd. There was a change of pitchers and the new pitcher balked which caused another run to score. The next batter hit the ball and he was out. The Sweets threw to 2nd as the Knights runner was off base as well as the runner at 3rd base. There was a multiple back and forth as the runner on 3rd tried to score. The runner on 2nd actually passed 3rd and then was forced to retreat towards second at the runner on 3rd headed back to 3rd. Finally the runner on second was tagged, but the runner on 3rd scored. The ball went back and forth between the Sweets players so many times it would take a video replay to score the play. Cowbells are rung when a hit occurs or when a run scores. There is a train outside the right field fence on a short line track. The mascot is Mack the Knight. Between inning activities were a mascot race around the bases and musical toilet bowl race on air filled fake toilets. One of the mascots in the race was the Oregon State beaver. An Elvis impersonator sang Take Me Out To The Ballgame rather badly in my opinion. There is a plaque on the wall behind the aisle behind homeplate about Scott Halbrook who was going to play for Oregon State, but died before he could.
