Brosius commits to OSU baseball

McMinnville rising senior David Brosius has decided to play his college baseball close to home.

Brosius announced his verbal commitment to the Oregon State University baseball program Saturday on his Twitter account. He chose the Pac-12 Conference school over Washington and other suitors.

A pitcher and outfielder for the Grizzlies this spring, Brosius batted .277 with a .326 on-base percentage. He posted a 6-1 record in nine appearances as a pitcher, allowing eight earned runs and 26 walks in 39 1/3 innings pitched. Brosius also struck out 50 batters on the season.

Brosius is the son of Linfield College baseball coach Scott Brosius, who played for the Oakland Athletics and the New York Yankees in an 11-year Major League Baseball career. Scott Brosius was named Most Valuable Player in the 1998 World Series, a 4-0 Yankees sweep of the San Diego Padres.
