Gopher Baseball

Golden Gopher Baseball in 1900: The team was 17-11-1 that year.

The University of Minnesota Golden Gopher baseball squad takes on Wake Forest in the Texas A&M Regional on Friday. It’s the Gophers’ first appearance in the NCAA tourney since 2010. Minnesota, the Big Ten regular season winner, is the region’s second seed, behind A&M.

It’s been an emotional roller coaster ride for Gopher baseball this year, with veteran pitching coach Todd Oakes facing another battle with cancer. Oakes, who was with Minnesota for 18 years, lost that battle on May 26; he was 55.

Good luck to the Gophers at Blue Bell Park.
