College World Series: Gary Henderson connected to both sides of MSU/Oregon State matchup

OMAHA, NE (Mississippi News Now) -

Mississippi State is set to play Oregon State in the College World Series Bracket 1 Final. The Beavers are no stranger to interim head coach Gary Henderson. He was the pitching coach in Corvallis from 1999-2003, laying the foundation of a program that would win back to back national titles. So his ties with OSU head coach Pat Casey are pretty strong.

"Coach Casey's group will be well coached. Good assistant coaches as well: Nate and Pat are really good coaches. Coach Casey's teams compete really well and are well prepared. We spent one miserable year together, and then we spent 4 years getting better. And putting something in place that he would be really proud of and build on. In a real small, small way, I feel a piece of that and Casey knows that. I've shared that with him before. But I'm an Oregonian, proud to be at Mississippi State. Proud of every place I've ever coached."
