Eugene's minor league baseball team, the Emeralds, will be paying homage to Civic Stadium tonight (Friday) at their new home, PK Park near Autzen Stadium. Civic Stadium was the longtime ballpark of the Emeralds prior to their relocation. The historic venue burned down last month, four minors have been charged for starting the fire.

Both Oregon and Oregon State’s baseball teams played in NCAA Regional tournaments this weekend.  
 

Because of Oregon State’s number 1 rank, the team hosted their post season regional.  But the home crowd couldn’t deliver a perfect weekend for the Beavs.  OSU won their opening game against North Dakota State, but then dropped their second to UC Irvine.  The Beavers came back and won their next two games against UNLV and UC Irvine.  

OSU’s Jeff Hendrix, a Corvallis native, went 4 for 4 in Sunday’s win.

Saturday at 11, the Duck football team will win its first game of 2014. It will be Duck versus Duck for the annual spring game.

For the fifth straight year, the Duck’s Spring Scrimmage will honor the military. U of O spokesman Andy McNamara says players will wear specially-designed jerseys:

McNamara: “It’s a one-time only uniform that will be donated after the game. The players will give their uniforms to some service men and women that are down on the field.”

The high-tech uniforms are wolf grey with yellow highlights and olive green.
