Corn Flakes: Big Ten Baseball Tourney Time!

Jon Johnston

The 2014 Big Ten Baseball Tournament starts today! 

The first game starts at 9:00 am this morning, with Illinois taking on Michigan State. Nebraska will play at 1:00 pm against Ohio State. Neither of these games are televised. 

CN will have a game thread up at 12:30 pm for the opening Husker baseball game, and I've opened up today's links with two articles around Chris Webb, who writes for Land-Grant Holy Land (SBNation Ohio State site). Webb pays more attention to Big Ten baseball than anyone else in the nation.
