It was good to see a Big Ten team make the CWS. The College World Series has been dominated by warm-weather colleges for years. It has been since 1984 that any Big Ten team made the “Big Show” in Omaha. That team was Michigan, and it featured Barry Larkin and Hal Morris–both who played with the Reds. It was even more satisfying for me because they did it at the home of Florida State, one of the dominating teams in the CWS. It is very difficult for the northern teams to compete because of the weather in this area during March and April. They take trips to the south during spring break, but for most of the spring they play in cold, wet conditions not conducive to baseball. I can remember watching games at Purdue where the players had to wear coats over their uniforms just to survive the bitter cold. Indiana has recruited many local area players, and this makes it even more satisfying. They did not win the whole thing, but maybe that will come another year. Congratulations to the Hoosiers on a great season.
