"Coach Pat Casey and the Oregon State Baseball team have joined us," said President Bush. "Oregon State is here to celebrate two consecutive national championships in baseball. Earlier this summer the Beavers won all five of their games in the College World Series. That is hard to do. You outscored your opponents 42-16. You trailed for only one inning. You took the lead and never looked back. And as a result, you're the first college baseball team to win back-to-back titles in 10 years. And I'm proud you're here, and congratulations on the job you're doing. (Applause.)"
The President hosted the 2006-2007 NCAA champions at the White House.
