Pat Casey

Oregon State's Pat Casey won another national coach of the year award Tuesday morning. 

Oregon State's Pat Casey was named National Coach of the Year by the American Baseball Coaches Association Tuesday morning.

The honor comes just a day after Collegiate Baseball announced Casey as its Coach of the Year.

The ABCA award is voted on by members of association. It's the third time Casey has been honored by the ABCA, following recognition in 2006 and 2007 following OSU's back-to-back national titles. 

"Individual awards are a result of a collaborative effort by all coaches and players to become one team," Casey tweeted. "Thank you to all in the Oregon State baseball program. And to Beaver Nation, thank you for all your support!"

Casey led OSU to its third College World Series championship last week, including a perfect 6-0 record in elimination games. Thursday's 5-0 shutout of Arkansas to clinch the title was Casey's 900th career win in Corvallis.

The Beavers won 55 games in 2018, one shy of the school record of 56 set in 2017. OSU has posted a 111-18-1 (.858) record over the past two seasons.

The Beavers are 21-10 all-time at the CWS under Casey and 24-9 in NCAA tournament elimination games.

Casey has now been named National Coach of the Year by at least one publication in five different seasons: 2005, 2006, 2007, 2017 and 2018. He is also a five-time conference coach of the year (2005, 2006, 2013, 2014 and 2017).
