Oregon State University Baseball Coach Pat Casey has promoted Marty Lees to the position of Associate Head Coach.
Lees, entering his ninth season with the Beavers, "...has been a big part of this program," Casey said. "He's hard-working, he has a great knowledge of the sport, and he has been an excellent recruiter. He has been key in helping make this program successful in the Pac-10 and nationally."
Lees has overseen the Beavers' defense in his 8 years, specifically working with the infielders and catchers. Lees in recent years has been in the third base coaching box when the Beavers are at bat.
"It's an honor and privilege to be here at Oregon State and I am excited about this promotion," Lees said. "Over the past nine years, it has been a great opportunity that I've been fortunate to be able to work with other great coaches. I want to thank Coach Casey and Bob De Carolis for this opportunity. Oregon State and the Corvallis community have been great to me."
Lees has also been the team's recruiting coordinator for the last two-plus years, and has been with Casey for more than half of his career at Oregon State, which is beginning its 16th. year. Lees is a native of Lakeview, OR, and graduated from Western Oregon University in 1994, after lettering in baseball for two seasons for the Wolves. He played his first two seasons at Lane Community College.
