Former O-State baller gets World Series ring

October 29th, 2007

Jacoby Ellsbury became an integral part of the Boston Red Sox run to the Major League Baseball World Series. Ellsbury became known for his amazing speed, hot bat, and unflappable demeanor as he took over center field duties for the slumping Coco Crisp.

Former Beaver Jacoby Ellsbury doubles in Game 4 of the 2007 World Series
Ellsbury, whose speed and leadoff prowess were well known by Beaver Nation, became the first rookie in 61 years to have 4 hits in the World Series. It happened on the same night as the 2007 College World Series champions received their rings. Coincidence??? I think not.

Ellsbury was a team leader for the 2005 Beavers and helped lead them to their first College World Series appearance in over 50 years.

Ellsbury hails from Madras, Oregon. According to Fox Sports commentator Tim McCarver, Madras is “just a little south of Portland”. Ummm, no Tim. It’s actually to the southeast of Portland….about 3.5 hours.

Congrats to Jacoby and the Red Sox!
