The Big Ten and NCAA record crowds weren’t the only ones enjoying themselves at the 2014 Big Ten Baseball Tournament. No, the players had more than their share of good times throughout the five-day tourney at TD Ameritrade Park.
Day 4 of the Big Ten Baseball Tournament is officially in the books. No. 2 Nebraska kicked off the action with a 6-1 win over No. 5 Michigan. No. 1 Indiana followed with an impressive 7-4 victory over No. 6 Michigan State.
Day 2 of the Big Ten baseball tourney is in the books, and it was another day full of close games. The results: No. 3 Illinois nipped No. 7 Ohio State, No. 8 Iowa dropped No. 4 Minnesota, No. 2 Nebraska edged No. 6 Michigan State and No. 1 Indiana took down No. 5 Michigan.
For the second straight day, the single-day attendance record at the Big Ten tournament was set, with 11,756 fans coming through gates at TD Ameritrade Park on Thursday.
Minnesota was eliminated from the Big Ten baseball tourney Thursday afternoon, and that’s bad news for fans of entertaining dugout fun. In case you missed it late Wednesday night, Minnesota freshman pitcher Cody Campbell hijacked coach John Anderson’s BTN dugout interview by getting a fake tattoo drawn on his right arm in the background of the shot. In Thursday’s loss to Iowa, Campbell and his wild beard stole the show.
It’s Super Regional time for softball, and three Big Ten teams are one best-of-3 series away from advancing to the Women’s College World Series in Oklahoma City. Michigan and Nebraska open Super regional action Thursday night, at No. 8 Florida State and No. 2 Alabama, respectively. Minnesota, making its Super Regional debut, opens Saturday night at No. 1 Oregon.
