Earlier this summer, speculation arose that Oregon State Baseball head coach Pat Casey may be stepping down following his third national championship with OSU. At the time, many, including D1Baseball’s Kendall Rogers, doubted the story and eventually refuted it.

On Thursday morning, however, Oregon State announced that a major announcement on a “sensitive topic” would be coming later in the day.

Shortly after that announcement, Rogers tweeted out a story in which he stated D1Baseball’s sources have told him that Pat Casey will be hanging it up at age 59.

Here’s an excerpt from the article:

“Rumors swirled earlier this summer that Casey, 59, was considering retirement, but he insisted at that time he was going nowhere. But the long-time Beavers skipper had a change of heart and is calling it a career with the Beavers.”

An official announcement is set for 1:30 PM. We’ll be updating with more posts throughout the day as this story develops.
