Oregon State baseball embarks on the final Pac-12 Tournament as we know it this week in Scottsdale, Ariz.

The Beavers open pool play Wednesday against Stanford at 10:00 a.m.  Tuesday, Beavs ace Aiden May joined John Canzano on the Bald Faced Truth (afternoons 3-6 p.m.).

May, who played a season at Arizona before transferring to OSU, said he is excited to be back in a familiar place boasting favorable baseball weather.

“It’s awesome,” May said on 750 The Game. “Phoenix is kind of the mecca of baseball with spring training and obviously with the Pac-12, baseball is just kind of the lifeblood sport of Phoenix. So it’s awesome to be back here and the warm weather definitely makes the body feel good.”

The Beavers are the No. 2 seed in the tournament field. They narrowly missed the conference regular season title the final weekend at Arizona, but May says the team is channeling that experience to reach greater heights in the postseason.

“You take it in stride and say hey, you know what, we’re really good, we’re playing great baseball, but there’s always a chance to get better,” May said. “We keep that chip on our shoulder. We stay hungry. We go out and try to win the Pac-12 Tournament and then carry that into the regionals and super regionals and then into Omaha.”
