Tom Crean threw out the ceremonial first pitch at the Minnesota-Indiana baseball game Thursday night. The Hoosiers, who were looking to clinch their second consecutive outright Big Ten title, lost a 2-1 decision in extra innings. Indiana can wrap up the outright crown with a win Friday or Saturday. It could also do it with a Nebraska loss in one of its final two games. Watch Indiana host Minnesota at 8 p.m. ET tonight on BTN/BTN2Go.
