Looking for the top plays from Sunday’s Big Ten baseball action? We clipped all of the highlight packages from Sunday’s games and posted them here. Watch the highlights in this post.
The Big Ten had 30 players taken in the just completed NFL draft. But plenty of good players go undrafted every year and end up making NFL rosters and often having good careers. Some notables: Kurt Warner, Tony Romo, John Randle, Priest Holmes and Wes Welker.
Sam Macken had the game-winning RBI in the bottom of the seventh to lead No. 3 Minnesota to a 3-2 victory over No. 1 Michigan in the Big Ten Softball Tournament championship game. The victory marked the second Big Ten softball title in program history, and the first since 1999.
Day 2 of the 2014 Big Ten Softball Tournament ended with No. 1 Michigan, No. 3 Minnesota, No. 4 Wisconsin and No. 7 Ohio State, which upset co-champ and No. 2 Nebraska, all advancing to Saturday’s semifinals.
The Big Ten had just one way to go after producing only one selection in the first round of last year’s NFL draft: up. Last night, the Big Ten had four picks, with Michigan OT Taylor Lewan leading the way at No. 11 to the Titans. Ohio State LB Ryan Shazier went No. 15 to Pittsburgh, followed by Michigan State CB Darqueze Dennard at No. 24 to Cincinnati and Ohio State CB Bradley Roby at No. 31 to Denver.
